Tune - Into Thy Gracious Hands I Fall

You are here

The tune associated with the subject text is eluding me, in a hymnal I (otherwise) just completed indexing. I know I have heard it before, but cannot place it. Incipit and melody search have yielded no success. If anyone can figure it out, I would be most appreciative.

Page scan.



The incipit of the tune is reminiscent of the English traditional melody hymnary.org calls (not sure why) ADORATIO. But after the first 8 notes the similarities evanesce.

Let me add how glad I am that you've indexed The Christian Hymnary, Bks. 1-4. I had started that at one point but never got far in it.

I'm sure the tune will come back to me some day! :)

I appreciate your comments about The Hymnary. It was a good challenge for me—especially all the German!
