This is a very well known and beloved tune dating from the time of Henry the VIII in Britain. Therefore, there are lots of slight variations in how people have learned this tune. Please be very careful to make sure all singers agree on the notes actually written. This will make the singers the listeners much more comfortable with your performance. The consonant combination "th" is very difficult for listeners to hear. Singers should work diligently to be very intentional to articulate the text throughout. The verses are all built in two similar four-measure phrases. Even though the destinations are different, both phrases end with "echo words." Therefore, please be careful to sing the second syllable softer than the first. For example,"sleep-ing", "keep-ing", in the verses. In the repeated refrains, please sing "Ma-ry" in the same way; it too is an "echo word." To "bring laud" is to bring praise and adoration. A "mean estate" does not equal "angry"; it refers to a place of poverty. Part of the reason this is such a well-known and beloved tune is that it is very singable and very lovely. Therefore, when you sing it, always work toward making your very best sound and very best "face." You will enjoy your performance more and so will your listeners.
