Description: Words by an unknown author, apparently first published in George Whitefield's Collection of Hymns, 1755, in twelve stanzas. Jenks used the first two stanzas in his composition. Kroeger and Kroeger (2000) attribute this text to Charles Wesley, but the text could not be found among his published works – it doesn't sound like something by either Charles or John Wesley.
