By thy birth, thou holiest One
The text of this carol is first found in the Sunday School Hymnal, compiled by a Presbyter of the Diocese of Michigan (New York, 1866). The "Presbyter of the Diocese of Michigan," was the Rt. Rev. William Edmond Armitage, DD (1830-1873), who was Rector of St. John's Episcopal Church in Detroit and later Bishop of Wisconsin. It is found with this tune in A. B. Goodrich (ed.), A New Service and Tune Book for Sunday Schools (New York, 1866).
