Editor: Noel Stoutenburg (submitted 2002-09-20).   Score information: A4, 2 pages, 64 kB   Copyright: Personal
Edition notes: With few exceptions, the tune and text are provided here as printed in the revised and enlarged edition of The Revivalist, edited by Joseph Hillman and the Rev. L. Hartsough, published in Troy, New York in 1872. In that source, the editors printed the first system on two staves (Soprano/Alto, and Tenor/Bass), and the remainder of the hymn on three (Tenor/Bass on the same staff), and the first note of the Tenor is a major, and the first note of the bass a minor third lower than shown here. Finally, the editors did not show the syllables in the second through sixth strophes.
