4-4-6/4-4-6 compound meter In hymnological terms, it's in Common Meter, commonly marked 8 6. 8 6 and abbreviated CM in a hymnal. Common Meter has a strong history in church and folk music, and a great many plainsong hymns are in this meter. We are today more familiar with such CM hymns as 'O God our help in ages past' and 'In Christ there is no east or west.'
