Carradoc Plains. 11s & 8s.

A C major plain tune in 4/4 time. Composed 2013.

Text from Benjamin Francis, 1795.


I wrote this arrangement of a tune by W. E. Chute on July 23, 2013 after encountering a different setting in the Primitive Baptist Hymnal (second edition).


Ye objects of sense and enjoyments of time,
Which oft have delighted my heart,
I soon shall exchange you for views more sublime,
For joys that shall never depart.

Ye mountains and valleys, ye, rivers, and plains,
Thou earth and thou ocean, adieu;
More permanent regions where righteousness reigns,
Present their bright hills to my view.
