'Brother James' is the familiar name by which many remember James Macbeth Bain, who was born in Scotland towards the middle of the nineteenth century.

This is the old version that I knew as a child and that I have conducted over the years. It's in 2 parts for soprano and descant. There are two different descants - the first is on verse 3 and the second descant spreads over verse 4 and 5.
It's confusing for children because the words are only printed between the two lines of tune and yet there are 2 staves of music. So the children reading the bottom part don't recognise it as their singing part, because there don't seem to be any words to go with it. But it is the only 2 part edition available.
