Description: Perhaps this is an arrangement by Carrell of an older folk hymn.

Words by an anonymous author, first appearing in Jeremiah Ingalls' Christian Harmony, 1805, but undoubtedly much older (see Jackson 1953b, No. 145). Five stanzas are printed in Carrell's 1821 book. Southern Harmony, 1835, No. 28, is a three-part reduction of the above.
