Musical train wreck

I picked a hymn for Sunday morning that we don't sing much ("Praise my soul the king of heaven"), but which a lot of people probably know. I obviously haven't picked it in a long time, because when we rehearsed it in choir practice tonight, we were all thrown off. They changed the tune I was familiar with (Regent Square) in this Hymnal! Our current Hymnal was produced in 1988, so, yeah, it's been quite a while. Anyway, I think we'll sing it to the old tune I know on Sunday. That's easier than picking a whole new text.
