Hello Tom,

Not sure who put this up but the tune and the recording are not the same. The tune they are singing might be a Suffield of another kind. The music given is the Suffield tune that the hymn, "The Endless Song" is sung too by the Renton meeting recordings.

That, or they have this tune as the accompanying one but sing it to another completely different tune.

Thank you Spencer; I'm not very good on music myself and was just following a list I had. You are correct, that tune was actually Stuttgart. I've uploaded another version of this hymn also, which I think might be Suffield.

The tune called SUFFIELD (#472 in SS or #156 in Melodies & Chants) or BEAUMARIS (#387 in SS, #304 in Little Flock Tune Book, 1954 ed or #316 in 1979 ed) is the tune WIMBORNE composed as a L.M. by John Whitaker (1776-1847) in 1820.
