Looking at tunes for "Safely through another week", I'm wondering if the tune listed in the Hymnary as GUIDANCE is the same as the one used for [translations of] this text in Japanese and Esperanto hymnals under the tune name FAITHFUL GUIDE. The current Japanese "???21" says the composer was Marcus M. Wells, 1815-1895.

The hymnary lists a number of other tunes for the text, but with scanty supporting documentation. "FAITHFUL GUIDE" and "SABBATH (Mason)" are the only ones I'm familiar with in hymnal usage.
