- Edition notes: The keyboard accompaniment has been omitted from this edition. Only the first verse of the text is given in the source: the remainder of the text has here been added editiorially. The last word of the second line of verse 1 is given in Fawcett's The Harp of Zion as 'glow': it has here been changed editorially to 'grow', which is the more usual form of the text.
