Edition notes: The order of parts in the source is Tenor - [Alto] - Air - [Bass], with the Alto and Tenor parts printed in the treble clef an octave above sounding pitch. Only the first verse of the text is given in the source: subsequent verses have been added editorially here, with suggestions for accommodating the repetition of part of line 4 in the tenor part. The soprano A and alto F on beat 3 of bar 4, shown here as crotchets, are printed in the source as small crotchet grace notes, slurred to the next note which is given in both parts as a full-sized minim.
