QUOD, that madest earth and heaven,
For rest the night!
This livelong night!
Guard us waking, guard us sleeping;
And when we die,
All peaceful lie !
With Thee on high!
OLD 124th Psalm.* 10, 10, 10, 10, 10.
From the Psalter, 1563. Harmonized by W. L. DICKINSON,
* The Tune of the 124th Psalm, both in the English Psalter of 1563 and in the French Psalter of 1565; the versions of the Psalm by Dean Whittingham and by Theodore Beza being both in stanzas of five lines. But the rhythm of the Tune, which is uniform throughout in the English Psalter, is varied in the different strains in the French. The long notes at the close of the Tune have been adopted from the French version. N.B.-If the repetition of the last line in each stanza of the Hymn be objected to, the third or fourth strain of the Tune may be omitted.
