Milgrove was Precentor of the Countess of Huntingdon's Chapel in Bath (see illustration). This setting comes from "Twelve hymns and a favourite lyric poem written by Doctor Watts; set to music for four, and five voices, with organ accompaniments.... " Printed for the author, and sold at his house in Bond Street, Bath, 1781. The general congregation (sometimes divided into men and women) should sing the Air, accompanying harmonies to be taken by the choir.
Lyrics: ?Isaac Watts

Think now, dear Jesus on the pain,
The toil and smart Thou did'st sustain,
And smart Thou did'st sustain.
Kindly, dear Lamb, return and come,
And make my heart thy constant home,
Nor ever more depart.

No more let sable clouds of night
Arise to intercept my light,
Or earth my heart detain:
By thy dear cross still let me stay,
Here let me sing each happy day,
And die to live again.
