Notes

With thankful hearts our songs we raise. [Holy Baptism.] This hymn is No. 278, in the 4th edition, 1832, of J. Bickersteth's Psalms & Hymns, in 4 stanzas of 4 lines. In common with all the hymns in the collection, it is unsigned, and there is nothing to determine its authorship. It is sometimes attributed to "Bickersteth," but for this ascription we know of no authority whatever. It is in somewhat extensive use in America --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
