Same Words...Different Tune

Northgate Baptist Church in Norman, Oklahoma, used to use Soul-Stirring Songs & Hymns as their hymnal (they recently got new hymnbooks, and now they use The All-American Hymnal). Our songleader, Avan Lanzo, didn’t actually read music, but he knew the hymns, so if he called out a number, we’d turn to it, he’d sing it, and we’d be fine. That is…unless we happened to be singing Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus or Onward, Christian Soldiers. You see, there were two tunes for those hymns in that hymnal, and Brother Lanzo had a knack for calling out the one he didn’t mean. The first time he called out 432 (instead of 433) for Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus, I just played 433, because it was the Webb version—easier, and I wasn’t sure I could handle Geibel’s tune for it on the spot…but I went home, and practiced 432, and the next time we were singing it and he called out 432, I was ready. Played the introduction and everything. Problem was, he just started singing 433—the tune he’d meant in the first place. After that, I would just play the Webb tune regardless of what he called out.
As for Onward, Christian Soldiers, when he called out 485…well, forget it! That was some obscure choir arrangement that NOBODY in the church had ever heard before—it was too difficult to sit down and play on the spot, and we knew he had to mean the Arthur Sullivan tune at 422.
However, there are definitely hymns where you might hear the same words under a different tune once in a while. Take Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus. The Webb tune is probably the most famous, but Geibel’s appears in most hymnals with it—and it’s a very good tune in its own right. Jude’s choir setting of Onward, Christian Soldiers only appears in three hymnals, but once you master it, it’s a stirring, triumphant piece that really fits the meaning of the words. In this collection, I’ve included three other pairs that I’ve run across—Glory Be to the Father, where the Greatorex tune is definitely the most famous but where both are often included in hymnals—I Will Sing of My Redeemer, where Prichard’s alternate tune is famous for also being the setting to Jesus, What a Friend for Sinners and Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus—and Jesus Shall Reign, which I recently discovered that Haldor Lillenas (composer of Wonderful Grace of Jesus) wrote an alternate choral setting for. It’s not well-known, but like Jude’s Onward, Christian Soldiers—if you can learn it, boy! what an impact it will have.
As you play through these hymns, if you can, think about the words to them…especially when you play both versions. Which one fits the words better? Are they about equal? Which one do you like to play more? And please, even if you’re more familiar with one of these tunes than the other—give the other one a try too. That way, you’ll be ready if the songleader actually means it when he calls out 432…
