- Edition notes: The alto and tenor parts are given in the alto and tenor clefs respectively in the source. The notes in the soprano part on the second beat of bar 8 and in bar 9 are both printed in the source as G♯, but have here been emended to G♮ as more consistent with the harmony. The first verse of text is underlaid in the source, with all subsequent verses printed after the music: of these, verses 2 and 3 have here been underlaid additionally.
