An anthem for Thanksgiving Day morning from Billings' Continental Harmony, 1794. The reduction should be reserved for rehearsal. I have attempted to preserve the differences in relative speed shewn in the original. Billings' own absolute tempi are well documented (a pulse of c.60 per minute would apply to this piece) but have been increased, more readily to accord with the modern audience's attention span.

Lyrics: Psalm 30, v.4,5

Sing praises to the Lord, O ye saints of his.
For his wrath endures but a moment, and in his favour is life for evermore: heaviness may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

William Billings
(1746 - 1800)

Sing praises to the Lord

(S.A.T.B. + reduction)
