1 Once more, before we part,
We'll bless the Savior's name.
Record his mercies every heart,
Sing, every tongue, the same.

2 Hoard up his sacred word,
And feed thereon, and grow:
Go on, and seek to know the Lord;
And practice what you know.

The Christian's duty, exhibited in a series of hymns, 1791

Author: J. Hart

Hart, Joseph, was born in London in 1712. His early life is involved in obscurity. His education was fairly good; and from the testimony of his brother-in-law, and successor in the ministry in Jewin Street, the Rev. John Hughes, "his civil calling was" for some time "that of a teacher of the learned languages." His early life, according to his own Experience which he prefaced to his Hymns, was a curious mixture of loose conduct, serious conviction of sin, and endeavours after amendment of life, and not until Whitsuntide, 1757, did he realize a permanent change, which was brought about mainly through his attending divine service at the Moravian Chapel, in Fetter Lane, London, and hearing a sermon on Rev. iii. 10.

Notes

Once more before we part. [Close of Service.] The details concerning this hymn, and others which have grown out of it, are as follows:--
1. Once more before we part. By J. Hart, in his 1762 Supplement to his Hymns, &c, No. 79, as follows:—

"Once more, before we part,
We'll bless the Saviour's name ;
Record His mercies every heart,
Sing every tongue the same.

"Hoard up His sacred word,
And feed thereon and grow;
Go on to seek, to know the Lord,
And practice what you know.”

This is in common use in Spurgeon's Our Own Hymn Book 1866, and other collections.
2. Once more before we part. By J. Hart and R. Hawker. In 1787 R. Hawker opened a Sunday School at Charles, Plymouth; and then, or shortly after, he published his Psalms & Hymns Sung by the Children of the Sunday School in the Parish Church of Charles, Plymouth, &c. N.D.. In this Collection Hart's hymn appeared in this form:—

Once more before we part,
Bless the
Redeemer's name;
Write it on every heart.
Speak every tongue the same.

Chorus. Jesus the sinners' friend,
Him Whom our souls adore:
His praises have no end;
Praise Him for evermore.

“Lord, in Thy grace we came;
That blessing still impart;
We met in Jesus' name,
In Jesus' name we part.
Jesus the sinners' friend, &c.

“Still on Thy holy word,
We'd live, and feed, and grow;
Go on to know the Lord,
And practice what we know
.
Jesus the sinners' friend, &c.

“Here, Lord, we came to live,
And in all truth increase;
All that's amiss forgive,
And send us home in peace.
Jesus the sinners' friend, &c.

"Now, Lord, before we part,
Help us to bless Thy name;
May every tongue and heart
Praise and adore the same.
Jesus the sinner's friend," &c.

The portions above in italics are from Hart's hymns, and the last stanza is also Hart's stanza i. rewritten; the rest of the hymn is by Dr. Hawker. This text was repeated in several later collections.
3. Come, brethren, ere we part. This, as No. 610 in the Comprehensive Rippon, 1844, is composed of stanzas i. and ii. with the chorus from the Hart-Hawker text, and a new stanza as stanza iii. This text is repeated in Spurgeon's Our Own Hymn Book, 1866, No. 1049: but in the ascription the fact that stanza iii. is from the Comprehensive Rippon, 1844, is ignored.
4. Come, children, ere we part. This text in some American collections for children, and the English Methodist Sunday School Hymn Book, 1879, is composed of stanzas i. and iii. of the Comprehensive Rippon text slightly altered. [William T. Brooke]

Tune

SCHUMANN

SCHUMANN is one of many hymn tunes arranged by Lowell Mason (PHH 96). He first published the arrangement in Cantica Laudis (1850), a collection he edited with George J. Webb (PHH 559). First called WHITE, the tune was marked "Arr. from Schumann" and was thus ascribed to the German composer Robert A.…
