Henry Smart wrote the tune" Regent Square" for these words. It appeared in "Psalms and Hymns for Divine Worship" (1866), a collection whose editor was the minister of Regent Square Presbyterian Church in London.

The coupling of Horatius Bonar's words and Henry Smart's music has been popular for generations, especially in Scotland, where it has appeared regularly in various editions of "Church Hymnary". It may be found in the 5th edition of that collection as no.110. It may also be found in "Together in Song" (no.142) and other hymnbooks.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
