Those who wish to sing along have several choices, according to the Bridgewater entry on Hymnary.org (an obscure synonym for hymnal, this site is like the IMDb of church music). Edson did not write words for his tune, but three alternatives were written by others:
- Great God, Attend While Zion Sings by Isaac Watts
- To God the Father, God the Son also by Isaac Watts, who apparently liked this tune
- My favorite: Assembled in our school once more by Dr. L. Mason
My second thought was to wonder whether this piece had been played in our church during the composer's lifetime. If so, it would not have been on the historic organ used today, which was constructed for our third (1848) sanctuary in 1852.
