- Edition notes: The original order of staves is Tenor - [Alto] - Air - [Bass], with the air and bass bracketed together. The alto and tenor parts are given in the source in the treble clef, an octave above sounding pitch. Only the first verse of the text is underlaid in the source: subsequent verses have been added editorially.
Description: While this is the text underlaid in Marsh's book, and referred to in the heading of the setting as 'Hy: 91 Bk: 2 Dr. Watts', Marsh also suggests the metrical Old Version of Psalm 81 as an alternative.
Hymn Tune Index tune number 15506.
