Great God of Abraham, hear our prayer. T. Cotterill. [For the Conversion of the Jews.] First published in the 8th edition of his Selection, 1819, No. 242, in 5 stanzas of 4 lines, and headed, "For the conversion of the Jews." It was repeated in the 9th edition, 1820, and all subsequent reprints of that edition. It is in many modern hymn-books, although it is not so popular as of old; and in several it is ascribed to "Davies," an error which appeared in Bickersteth's Christian Psalmody, 1833.
