Notes

Jesus Christ, my Lord and Saviour. Jane Taylor. [Christ, the Children's Example.] Published in Hymns for Infant Minds, by Anne and Jane Taylor, 1810, in 6 stanzas of 4 lines, and headed, "The Example of Christ" (edition 1886, p. 99). It has attained to great popularity, and is in extensive use in Great Britain and America. In some American Hymns, including Beecher's Plymouth Collection, 1855, lines 3, 4 of stanza ii.—

"But the Lord was meek and lowly,
Pure and spotless, free from sin,"

is added as a refrain to each stanza, with line 4 as "And was never known to sin." This reading of this line is repeated in some English collections, including Mrs. Brock's Children's Hymn Book, 1881.

--John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
