"Last night Mr. Bliss had a tune given to him that I [Mrs Bliss] think is going to live and be one of the most useful that he has written. I have been singing it all the morning, and I cannot get it out of my mind."  She then sang the notes over to us. The idea of [Mr.] Bliss, in writing the hymn, was to bring out the truth that the peace and comfort of a Christian are not founded so much upon his love to Christ as upon Christ's love to him, and that to occupy the mind with Christ's love would produce love and consecration—as taught in Romans v. 5: "The love of God (to us) is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost, which is given unto us."
