Description: Published in Ingalls' Christian Harmony, 1805, pp. 139-140. The words were probably written by Jeremiah Ingalls, for use at the funeral of Polly Gould, who died as a child in 1790, published in 1805, in sixteen stanzas. This tune was revised by Lucius Chapin in 1813, rewriting it in E minor, putting it to words by Isaac Watts ("Lord, what a heaven of saving grace") and renaming it Vernon. Chapin's revision was put to differemt words by Charles Wesley ("Come, O thou traveller unknown") in Samuel Metcalf's The Kentucky Harmonist, 1818. This was repeated by William Walker, reduced to three parts, in Southern Harmony (p. 34) in 1830. Moore's version was restored in The Sacred Harp (p. 55b) from 1844 through 1911; the 1991 edition has it on page 95b.
