Waterville L.M.


This tune was written by Japheth Coombs Washburn, about 1818 and published in his tunebook, The Temple Harmony, p. 195. The words are from Isaacs Watts, Psalms of David, Book II, Hymn 60.

It is highly probable that the hymn was sung in Waterville at the First Baptist Church in Waterville. Washburn lived in China, Maine at the time and belonged to the Baptist Church in China, Maine.
