Description: A folk hymn, based in part on the old English folk song The Grenadier and the Lady (Jackson 1953a, no. 46; 1953b, no, 42). This tune was re-harmonized for four voices by Ananias Davisson in the Supplement to the Kentucky Harmony in 1820, and by Allen Carden in The Missouri Harmony in 1820; Davisson's version was reprinted in The Southern Harmony in 1835.

Words by an unknown author, before 1790. There are several versions of the text. Ingalls included eight stanzas in his 1805 book.
