- 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).
First published: 1794 in Improved Psalmody, p. 37
