Milgrove was Precentor of the Countess of Huntingdon's Chapel in Bath (see illustration). This setting comes from his first (of three) collections of "hymns as they are sung at the Right Honourable the Countess of Huntingdon's chappel in Bath". The general congregation (sometimes divided into men and women) should sing the Air, accompanying harmonies to be taken by the choir.
Lyrics: John Cennick

Brethren, let us join to bless
Jesus Christ, our joy and peace:
Let our praise to Him be given,
High at God's right hand in heaven.
Hallelujah, praise the Lord.

Master, see, to Thee we bow,
Thou art Lord, and only Thou:
Thou, the blessed Virgin's seed,
Glory of the church and head.
Hallelujah, praise the Lord.

Thee the angels ceaseless sing,
Thee we praise, our priest and king:
Worthy is thy name of praise,
Full of glory, full of grace.
Hallelujah, praise the Lord.

Thou hast the glad tidings brought
Of salvation by Thee wrought:
Wrought for all the church, and we
Worship in thy company.
Hallelujah, praise the Lord.

We, thy little flock, adore
Thee, the Lord, for ever more:
Ever with us shew thy love
'Til we join with those above.
Hallelujah, praise the Lord.
