According to the <<Scottish Metrical Psalter >> [1929], the tune for =
Psalm 105 is St Gregory (common meter) by Robert Wainwright 1748-82 in =
3/2 tempo.

As the tune is in 3/2 tempo its rhythm could only be a waltz or jig.=20
If a jig, one would have to cut the number of bars in half, which would =
make it a very short tune.
Then there is the problem of the metrics in the text itself which call =
for a pattern of 3(A[8] B[6]) but the tune is 2(A[8]+B[6])
Also hard to dance to as the A-phrases are 4 bars, and the B-phrases are =
3-bars
Since this fits the text, how can any other phrasing work?
