First published: 1805 in Ingalls' The Christian Harmony, p. 108
Description: This tune was re-harmonized by Lucius Chapin in 1812, in four parts, re-titled Ninety-Third Psalm. In the re-harmonized form it appeared in Southern Harmony, 1835, page 7 (three parts); and in The Sacred Harp, page 31, from 1844 (three parts) to the present. Some time before 1911 the tune in The Sacred Harp acquired a different Alto part than Chapin's. Words by Charles Wesley, 1742, Hymns on God's Everlasting Love, no. 16, with sixteen stanzas, in double simple meter (66. 86. 66. 86). Ingalls' composition halved the meter (66. 86), taking half of one of Wesley's stanzas at a time – so Ingalls has eight stanzas, which are stanzas one, two, three, and twelve of Wesley's hymn.
