Father of me and all mankind. C. Wesley. [The Lord's Prayer.] This paraphrase of The Lord's Prayer as in St. Luke xi. 2-4, was given in his Short Hymns, &c, 1762, vol. ii., in 8 separate hymns numbered 342-349; but in the Poetical Works, 1868-72, vol. xi. p. 200, these hymns are massed as one, No. 1366, in 10 stanzas of 8 lines. The cento in common use appeared in the Wesleyan Hymn Book, 1780, No. 242, in 5 stanzas of 4 lines, and is compiled from the original hymns, No. 342 and 343. It is found in several collections in Great Britain and America, and sometimes as "Father and God of all mankind," as in Longfellow and Johnson's Book of Hymns, Boston, 1846-8, &c. Wesley's version of the Lord's Prayer as in St. Matthew vi. 9-13, begins, "Father of earth and sky," q.v.
