Description: A folk hymn, based in part on the old English folk song The Grenadier and the Lady (Jackson 1953a, no. 46; 1953b, no, 42). This tune was originally published for three voices by Jeremiah Ingalls in The Christian Harmony in 1805; re-harmonized as above, and by Allen Carden in The Missouri Harmony in 1820, Davisson's version was reprinted in The Southern Harmony in 1835.
Words by an unknown author, before 1790. There are several different versions. Davisson included four stanzas with his composition.
