The first verse of text is underlaid in the source, and four further verses (numbered 2 to 5) are printed after the music. In each of these verses, two syllables in the last line are underlined. A note below reads: 'N.B. The Words in the other Verses with a Mark under them are to be sung twice, in the Treble and Counter Tenor'.
