Wow Bruce, I am so confused... There's Chevy Chace, God Prosper Long Our Noble King, and Hardyknute... and now I'll Never Love the More. So as I understand it they were all probably sung to the same or a similar tune at one time?

As an aside, I think it's so interesting that the tunes that we associate with songs now were not always the case - and that songs were sung to several tunes... Makes it all confusing as much as fascinating... I was very surprised when the music I had of My Lodging It Is On the Cold Ground didn't sound at all like Believe Me If All Those Endearing Young Charms - turns out Cold Ground had several tunes associated with it over time... And The Old Oaken Bucket was originally sung to Jesse, the Flower of Dunblane...
