Editor: Mark Hamilton Dewey (submitted 2006-08-10).   Score information: Letter, 1 page, 72 kB   Arrangement Copyright: Public Domain (released to the public domain by the arranger on 27 July 2007)
Edition notes: Parts, verses 1-2, and re-versification by Mark Hamilton Dewey (b. 1980); arrangement written in the summer of 2006 for seven voices, SAATTBB. Verses 1-2 written on 27 July 2007. This arrangement was written on account of the scarcity of public domain choral arrangements of this song, and also to allow female singers to feel more comfortable singing (i.e. the second verse was changed; it used to say "I Thy true son", with son seeming to refer to the singer). The midis will act as karaoke; all verses play.
