Baxter directed that it should be sung to the tune of the 148th psalm. This particular tune to that psalm, however, came a century later. Darwall, the vicar of Walsall, had written a set of tunes for each of the 150 psalms, and this one took the attention of Aaron Williams who included it in his New Universal Psalmist (1770). It seems to have been connected with the present words in the nineteenth century.
