Description: A setting of Psalm 66 in the metrical New Version. Hymn Tune Index tune number 2649. Although this tune is headed 'Ps: 65th. A 4 Voci.' in Church Harmony, the opening words of the text given are 'Let all the Lands with shouts of joy. &c.', the beginning of the New Version Ps. 66. Furthermore, Psalm 65 NV, 'For thee, O God, our constant praise', is a Long Metre text, and so would not fit this Common Metre tune without some splitting of notes.
