Notes

The night is wearing fast away. [Second Advent.] This appeared anonymously in the Plymouth Brethren's Hymns for the Poor of the Flock, 1838, No. 86, in 5 stanzas of 4 lines, and again in several later collections. In The Christian Hymnal (n.d.) it is attributed to Sir E. Denny, but it is not in his Hymns and Poems, 1848 or 1870. In J. Denham Smith's New Times of Refreshing, 1888, the author's name is given as "Hoare."
