Edition notes: The order of parts in the source is Alto - Tenor - Air - Bass, with the Alto and Tenor parts given in the treble clef an octave above sounding pitch. The second quaver of bar 13 in the tenor part, given here as a G, is printed in the source as the B a major third higher. Only the first verse of the text is given in the source: subsequent verses have here been added editorially. The three verses given here are those printed as Hymn 136 in A New Selection of Hymns, especially adapted to Public Worship, and intended as a supplement to Dr. Watts' Psalms and Hymns, London: Printed for the Proprietors, by J Haddon, Castle Street, City Road, 1828.
