Davidís Lamentation 239

Tune: William Billings, 1778
Alto: Kentucky Harmony, 1816
Lyrics: Holy Bible: II Samuel 18:33
Meter: Prose
David, the king, was grieved and moved
He went to his chamber and wept;
And as he went, he wept and said:
"O my son,
Would to God I had died,
For thee, O Absalom, my son!"
