Notes

Father of Jesus Christ my Lord, I humbly seek Thy face. C. Wesley. [Before Private Prayer.] This hymn is No. 2 of six hymns given at the end of a tract entitled, A Short View of the Differences between the Moravian Brethren in England and J. and C. Wesley, 1745, in 7 stanzas of 4 lines. It was also included in the Hymns for those who Seek, and those who Have Redemption, &c, 1747, No. 39 (Poetical Works, 1868-1872, vol. iv. p. 259). Sometime after J. Wesley's death in 1791, but before 1809, it was given, unaltered, in the Wesleyan Hymn Book. It has passed into several collections, and is in common use in Great Britain and America.
