Choral anthem: Sing to the Lord Jehovah’s name

I am a fan of (among other things) early American hymn tunes, Sacred Harp singing, and the music of William Billings, who lived from 1746-1800. Learn more about Billings at Wikipedia.

Our choir will be singing one of Billings’ tunes, MEDWAY (not the MEDWAY you may know), and I have typeset it to fit on one page front and back. The text comes from Isaac Watt’s paraphrase of Psalm 95:

Sing to the Lord Jehovah’s name,
And in His strength rejoice,
When His salvation is our theme,
Exalted be our voice.

CPDL has two other versions of this piece by Billings: Standard Notation, G; Shape Note, G
