A facsimile of the 1846 reprinting of the ninth edition of the Missouri Harmony has the three verses Burke lists immediately above, the first and third of which are in the Denson Sacred Harp. The Missouri version is three lines and gives the melody and start of the fugue to the treble; the Sacred Harp version has four lines, the melody in the tenor, and the fugue starting with alto and tenor together, as does the Christmas Harp.
