- Edition notes: Transcribed from the tonic solfa version in The Anthem Book of the United Free Church of Scotland, 1905. The accompaniment is a reduction of the voice parts. There is obviously some missing accompaniment, particularly for the introduction and the unison bits, but this is not available inthe tonic solfa version.

O King, and desire of all nations,
Thou cornerstone, who hast made both one;
Come, and save man, whom Thou formedst from the clay.
