It is important to note that this hymn is in Long Meter (four lines with eight syllables per line, or LM, or 88 88) and there are hundreds of tunes that could be sung to this text. Lutheran Service Book alone has 40 tunes with this meter, plus a few that are Long Meter and Alleluias, and a few more that are Long Meter Double (LMD or 88 88 88 88), not to mention Long Meter and Refrain. WHEW!!!
So, when it comes to alternate tunes, I am sticking with ones that are actually paired with this text in print somewhere.
The names of these tunes are not cited, so if you know them, feel free to enlighten us in the comment box.
