Editor: Jason Smart (submitted 2019-11-25).   Score information: A4, 7 pages, 205 kB   Copyright: CC BY NC ND
Edition notes: Three settings of the same tune, scored respectively for TTBB, STBB and SSTB. Edited from 'The Whole Psalmes in Foure Partes' (London: John Day, 1563). Original pitches and note values retained. Parsons's three treatments of the tune beg questions about the editorial sharpening of 'leading notes': see the critical commentary in the score.

Where righteousness doth say,
Lord, for my sinful part
In wrath thou should’st me pay
But needs I must confess
How that continually
Thy laws I do transgress.
