- Edition notes: This edition is based on the second edition of Knapp's New Church Melody (1754). Original clefs treble, alto, treble, bass. The first and second time bar markings over bars 33-45 and 46-63 are used to indicate the repeating of the chorus (bars 12-32), marked in the source with the textual note 'Sing the Chorus again Ascribe unto the Lord &c.'. The natural accidental on the G on beat 3 of bar 136 in the alto part is an editorial addition: in the source, this note has no accidental.
