Description: This is very similar to the Gillet arrangement called Berkley in 1794; but the Treble in 1794 has been switched with Tenor, the meter changed from 87.87.11. to 88.88.88., and the words changed. The Hymn Tune Index considers them different tunes.
Words by John Newton, 1779, from Olney Hymns, Hymn 78 of Book 1, with nine stanzas.
