Brought to the Font with holy care. E. Osler. [Holy Baptism—General.] First published in Hall’s Mitre Hymn Book, 1836, No. 222, in 4 stanzas of 4 lines, and entitled “For a Blessing on our Christian Privileges:” and again, with alterations, in the July number of the authors’ Church and King, for 1837. No. 238 in Kennedy, 1863, is the original Mitre text. Although not strictly speaking a hymn for Holy Baptism, yet it is suitable to be sung during a service when that Sacrament has been administered.
