Description: Although one source attributes this tune to the XVIIIth century English organist Maurice Greene (1696 - 1755), which is plausible because Greene almost certainly would have been acquainted with the William Tans'ur, editor of Harmony of Zion, 1734, the collection in which it first appears. However, the tune apparently lacks attribution in the source, and Tans'ur appears to generally be assumed to have been the composer. (Noel Stoutenburg). Words by Isaac Watts, Hymn 111 of Book 1.
