Description: First published in Jacob Kimball's Rural Harmony, 1793, for three voices. Arranged for four voices by Bartholomew Brown in 1810. Brown's arrangement was again arranged by Hauser in 1848, who removed all the grace notes and accidentals. Words by Isaac Watts, 1707, Hymn 86 of Book 2, with five stanzas. Hauser (and Kimball and Brown) used two stanzas of Watts' hymn for each stanza of this composition; the last part of stanza 3 of this work probably written by Hauser himself.
