Edition notes: The original order of parts is 2nd - 1st - [Instrumental bass] in the opening symphony, and Tenor - [Alto] - Treble - [Bass] - [Instrumental bass] thereafter. The alto and tenor voice parts are given in the treble clef an octave above sounding pitch in the source. The symphony after the verse is given on the voice parts in the source, with the second treble-range instrumental part (given here on the alto stave) printed on the tenor stave at the same pitch as given in this edition (i.e. this has not been transposed by an octave in transcription). The first verse of the text is underlaid in the source, with three other verses printed after the music: the first two of these have been underlaid editorially here. The numbering '18' applied to the last verse refers to the 18th stanza of the metrical psalm, rather than verse 18 as the psalm is usually numbered. The minim A in the 1st treble-range instrumental part on beats 1-2 of bar 8 is printed in the source as the F a minor third lower. The figuring '6' is given in the source on the instrumental bass D on beat 2 of bar 14. This has been omitted from this edition as it is not consistent with the upper parts.
