This is an easy one, since it's a common hymn. If you want a simple SATB freebie hymnal version, try:

Hickey's carries an arrangement for trombone quartet that may be more to your liking. Otherwise, there are lots of arrangments kicking around (don't overlook organ arrangements; they can be pretty elaborate). You can also check out the score from Bach's St. Matthew Passion, published by Dover.

Actually the melody for this hymn was composed by Hans Leo Hassler. Bach worked out the harmonization for the St. Matthew Passion.
