- Edition notes: Notes in four-shape format, as published in 1810 and 1825. Transcribed from Moore's Columbian Harmony, 1825.
Description: First published in Wyeth's Repository, 1810. This tune was arranged by [[Jerusalem (William Walker}|William Walker]] in Southern Harmony with different words (Jesus, my all, to heaven is gone ) and for three parts; Walker added a fourth part in 1867. Walker's three-part arrangement was reprinted in The Sacred Harp, p. 53, from 1844 to the present; Walker's Alto part was included in the 1911 edition and following. Words by Isaac Watts, from Horae Lyricae, 1706, poem entitled Longing for His Return, with five stanzas. Moore used the fifth stanza in his composition. Odd that a tune called Wesley was originally written for words not by either Charles or John Wesley.
