I also had searched YouTube to find an arrangement of the tune (as it appears in the Methodist hymnal) to no avail.  And
the Hawkins rendition is altered to the point where the tune has very little in common with the original.  The Wikipedia
entry says it was extensively rearranged, and it mainly has the words in common with the hymnal version, not the melody.
