Edition notes: The order of staves in the source is Tenor - [Alto] - Air - [Bass], with the alto part printed in the treble clef an octave above sounding pitch. Only the first verse of text is given in the source: the subsequent verses given in John Rippon's Selection of Hymns from the Best Authors have here been added editorially. These omit Isaac Watts' original verse 3, beginning 'I'd say, "How flesh and sense rebel"'.
