By prayer…with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

Philippians 4:6

Tune: CONVERSE 8 7 8 7 D.

Music: Charles C. Converse, 1868

Text: Joseph M. Scriven, 1855

Note: This hymn is also sung to two other tunes of BEACH SPRING 8 7 8 7 D from The Sacred Harp, Philadelphia, 1844 and BLAENWERN 8 7 8 7 D by William P. Rowlands. As they are both under copyright, I cannot include them here, but if you find either one, it is worth trying. While I like Converse’s version best, Beach Spring  and Blaenwern definitely have their own particular charms.
