- Edition notes: Based on #957 and also transposed a third higher. The first verse, O gladsome light, is missing and has been added here. Some minor alterations to the underlay have been made to fit the emphasis of the words. The tenor part is high, so it could be sung as SSAAB. Includes a keyboard reduction of the a cappella choral score.
