Description: Words by Robert Robinson, 1758, with three stanzas of meter 87. 87. D. Carrell used the second half of Robinson's first stanza in his composition.

The melody (Tenor) is the basis for the three-part version in William Walker's Southern Harmony, 1835, called Restoration. Walker sets his tune to a different hymn (John Newton's Mercy, O thou son of David). William Walker wrote a fourth part (Alto) for his arrangement in 1876. William Walker's version was re-arranged by T. B. Newton and S. W. Everett for the 1911 edition of The Sacred Harp, p. 312; for words they returned to Robinson's hymn.
