Description: A folk hymn, first arranged by Joseph Funk in his A Compilation of Genuine Church Music, 1832, to words by Charles Wesley, 1759, which begin And let this feeble body fail; this book was renamed Harmonia Sacra in 1851, and has gone through many editions down to the present. A slightly different arrangement (in F) appears in William Walker's Southern and Western Pocket Harmonist, 1846. The tune (usually with Watts' words) is very commonly found in hymnals and tunebooks. Words by Isaac Watts, 1719, paraphrase of Psalm 23, with six stanzas. Funk used two stanzas of Watts' paraphrase in each of his stanzas.
