Yonder, -- amazing! -- I see
The text of this carol is found on a broadside in the Bodleian Library [Harding B.7 (22)] printed in Devonport for S. & J. Keys, 7 James Street, Devonport, and also sold by W. Burridge of Truro and J. Perrow of St. Austle [sic.]. The author of the text was the Rev. Samuel Stennett, a Baptist pastor in Exeter. In the absence of a definitive tune, I have set it to John Wainwright's familiar tune, "Manchester," which was doubtless well known in nineteenth-century Cornwall.
