Edition notes: The original order of staves is 2nd - 1st - [Bass] for the opening symphony, Tenor - Alto - [Vocal bass] - [Instrumental bass] for the trio, and Tenor - [Alto] - Treble - [Vocal bass] - [Instrumental bass] for the choruses. With the exception of the opening symphony, the two treble-range parts of the symphonies are printed in the source on the same stave as the 'Tenor or Treble' vocal solo part, the upper part with stems up and the lower part with stems down. In the present edition, these instrumental parts have been separated out to aid legibility. The alto part in the source is printed in the treble clef an octave above sounding pitch.

In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah: we have a strong city, salvation will God appoint for walls and bulwarks.
Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter in.
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee, because he trusteth in thee.
Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength.
