Something should be done to show the relationship between these two hymns. It looks to me as if McAulay wrote three stanzas beginning with "Will", probably about 1904, and then Maud Frazer came along a few years later (ca. 1908) and changed the first word to "Shall" and added two stanzas (vv. 2 and 3 of 5).
