Genevan Resources for the 42nd Psalm.
Tune composed in 1551
Meter: 8 7. 8 7. 7 7. 8 8
Original French title: Ainsi qu'on oit le cerf
The third most popular Genevan tune. This engaging and rollicking melody is matched to a downcast and plaintive text, the only really inapt pairing in the entire collection. Go figure.
