Notes

Captain of our Salvation, take. C. Wesley. [Holy Baptism.] First published in his Hymns for Children, 1763. No. xli., in 4 stanzas of 6 lines (Poetical Works, 1868-72, vol. vi. p. 408). In 1780 it was given in the Wesleyan Hymn Book, No. 462. It is also found in the collections of other branches of Methodism. In 1852, when given in the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge Psalms & Hymns for "Baptism," stanza iii. was omitted. This form has been repeated in other hymnals. In 1871 it was included in the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge Church Hymns, for "Theological Colleges," a few judicious and appropriate alterations having been made to adapt it to that purpose.
