- Edition notes: The alto part is printed in the source in the treble clef an octave above sounding pitch, with the exception of bars 9-16, where the line given here as the alto part is printed on the soprano stave (as a second treble part). The E and C, given in the soprano and alto parts respectively in the present edition as semiquavers, are printed in the source as small quaver grace notes, slurred in each case from the preceding note, which is printed as a full-sized crotchet. The first verse only of the text is underlaid in the source, with no indication of which other verses should be sung: three further verses from the text have been selected and underlaid editorially, and the figuring of the bass part in the source has been omitted to facilitate this.
First published: 1805 in Twelve New Psalm Tunes, p. 8
