Notes

Jesus is our great salvation. J. Adams. [Election.] Published in the Gospel Magazine, May, 1776, in 6 stanza of 6 lines, and signed "J. A." In 1787 it was given in Rippon's Baptist Selection, No. 108, in 5 stanzas, and with the author's name. After J. Adams (q.v.) was expelled from the Baptist denomination, the hymn was continued in Rippon, but the author's name was withdrawn. The hymn is found in several modern hymn-books of a marked Calvinistic type, as Snepp's Songs of Grace & Glory, 1872, &c. This and other hymns by Adams were identified by his son, the Rev. S. Adams, sometime Vicar of Thornton, Leicestershire, (S. MSS.)
