Song background: <p>Some sources cite the music as coming from the 1835 edition of <em>Southern Harmony</em>, while others cite the 1840 edition. Since both editions are available on the internet as scanned PDFs, I searched, and was only able to find it in the 1840 edition.</p> <p>The original melody is in Dorian mode, but I was unable to find a version with harmonies that didn't sound too hap-hazard&nbsp; or incomplete (like the version printed in <em>Sounthern Harmony</em>) or too modern, such as is found in most current Christian hymnals. So I worked on creating my own version that felt like it stayed in Dorian mode while not sounding too modern.</p>
