First Line: Enlisted in the cause of sin
Composer: Jeremiah Ingalls
Lyricist: Charles Wesley

Number of voices: 3vv   Voicing: STB
Genre: Sacred   Meter: 87. 87. D

First published: 1805 in Ingalls' The Christian Harmony, p. 71, for three voices: Treble-Tenor-Bass. A folk hymn (Jackson 1953b, no. 156)

Description: Words by Charles Wesley, 1749, Hymns and Sacred Poems, Volume 2, Hymn 188, entitled The True Use of Music, with seven stanzas. Jackson points out the aptness of these words, "rationalizing the use of popular secular tunes in the religious environment," for Ingalls' tune was clearly derived from some (unknown) secular song. Ingalls changed the first two words, from Listed into to Enlisted in.
