An alternative tune, "Lilly", has been written for this hymn by the Revd Leslie Newton. Leslie's friend Rachel Shackleton writes:
"Since StF Plus, it's been so much easier to access fantastic new words/hymns that fit familiar metres and tunes and I'm so grateful to our current hymnwriters for that. But how refreshing to have such a beautiful, contemporary and easy-to-pick-up-and-sing new tune for Charles's wonderful original words - it just doesn't happen that often.
"And all of this was in the context of a workshop where we were seeing the best and the eternally true parts of our Methodist heritage, mission and purpose, but re-framing it in the light of who and where we are today (in the spirit of renewal and revival)."
