This edition has been prepared from that appearing in Boyce's "Cathedral Music". Boyce's forces at the original pitch (S.A.A.T.B.) have been redistributed to A.T.T.B.B., but a transposition for the original forces is also provided (a minor third higher).
Lyrics: Psalm 55, v.1,2,4,6

Hear my prayer, O God: and hide not thyself from my petition.
Take heed unto me, and hear me: how I mourn in my prayer, and am vexed.
My heart is disquieted within me: and the fear of death is fallen upon me.
And I said, O that I had wings like a dove: for then would I flee away, and be at rest.
