Wrestling Tunes

I forgot to mention the tunes.

I've discovered tunes as follows that must have been specially written for this hymn:

Wrestling Jacob by SS Wesley at Public School Hymn book 363 tune 2

Peniel by Josiah Booth at Congregational Hymnal 400

Jabbok by Cyril V. Taylor at BBC hymn book hymn 4

I deduce from the names that all of these were designed to suit this hymn. Of the three I think Jabbok the best. The rest are boring.
