To God with mournful voice. Tate & Brady. [Psalm cxlii.] In the New Version, 1696, in 7 stanzas of 4 lines. In 1836 it was re-written by J. Hall or E. Osier, probably the latter, and included in the Mitre Hymn Book, as,
"In deep distress to God
I poured my care and grief,"
in 4 stanzas of 4 lines, and from thence passed, without alteration, into the Festival Hymn Book, 1875, No. 634. The version of Ps. cxx. in the Mitre Hymn Book in 3 stanzas of 4 lines, beginning,
"In deep distress to God I cried
And He aveng'd my wrongs,"
was by E. Oder, and is also found in his Church and King, 1836-37, p. 137, for the 2nd Sunday after Trinity.
