Edition notes: The order of parts here is as given in the source. The topmost stave is printed in the alto clef in the source, and so is shown to be an alto part. The second stave is printed in the treble clef without indication of octave in the source: it has been treated as a tenor part in this edition, but could be doubled by sopranos an octave higher. The text is indicated in the source by the heading 'Ps: 67th', and the first line as 'To bless thy Chosen race &c.'. The remainder of the text has been added.
