First Line: Come, Holy Ghost, descend from high

Notes

Come, Holy Ghost, descend from high. [Holy Baptism.] This cento, in 2 stanzas of 4 lines, appeared in A. M. Toplady's Psalms & Hymns, 1776, No. 99. It is composed of stanza i. of C. Wesley's "Come Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, Honour the means," &c, as above, but slightly altered; and stanza ii. probably by Toplady. This was repeated in T. Beck's (q. v.) Hymns, &c, 1782. Iti Bickersteth's Christian Psalmody, 1833, it is given in error as of Beck's composing, and this error is repeated in later collections.

--John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
