    • Below are the original lyrics to the hymn, as first published in Occasional Verses. The hymn was originally sung to the tune “Miles Lane,” written by a friend of Edward, William Shrubsole. Just a few years after its release Oliver Holden of Massachusets composed an alternate tune for it, “Coronation,” which is the melody most familiar to us in North America. One other melody, popular in Australia and with choirs, is “Diadem.”
    • “Whenever you put people’s names in [a song] some people start getting upset about stuff and they quote passages that are out of context about touching God’s anointed,” said Stephen the Levite. “These people that [Shai Linne is] mentioning aren’t God’s anointed anyway so it doesn’t apply and I hope that they see that.”
