Edition prepared from "Harmonia coelestis or The Harmony of Heaven imitated", London, 1780. The source recommends use by S.S.B. or by T.T.B.

This piece has not been traced to a primary source. It should be remembered that this version is probably simplified for use in country parishes, and not in a cathedral foundation, where the treatment would have been more elaborate.
Lyrics: Psalm 42, vv. 1-2

Like as the hart desires the water brooks: so longeth my soul after thee, O God.
My soul is athirst for God, yea, even for the living God: when shall I come to appear before the presence of God?
