This text was written by the Rev. John Mason (1645-1694), who was Rector of Water Stratford in Buckinghamshire. I have taken the text from a broadside published by H. Wadsworth in Birmingham in around 1815. The tune was copied by G. A. Langford Skerry of Workington from a MS tune book in High Ham, Somerset.
