Editor: Edmund Gooch (submitted 2015-01-20).   Score information: A4, 1 page, 45 kB   Copyright: Public Domain
Edition notes: Only the first verse of the six given here is underlaid in the source: the other verses are printed after the music and have been underlaid editorially. The bass G on beat 1 of bar 12 appears to be intentional, as the same note is given in the 1795 reissue of Improved Psalmody in partbook format (pp26-27 of the Bass partbook).
