Edition notes: The allocation of the soprano and tenor parts is not specified in the source, although the third line down is specified as 'Air' at the start of this and other pieces in the book, and the 'Air' and bass parts are bracketed together. Given the prevalence throughout the book of passages in parallel thirds in the topmost line (either unaccompanied, or with bass accompaniment only), that line has been treated here as the soprano part, and the air as the tenor part. All three upper parts are printed in the source in the treble clef, with the alto printed an octave above sounding pitch: it has been given here at the sounding pitch. The vocal bass part is figured in the source: the figuring has been omitted from this edition.
The text used here, of which the first verse is underlaid in the source, is no. 24 from A Collection of Hymns for the use of the People Called Methodists, compiled by John and Charles Wesley: three other verses from this text have been selected and added editorially here.
