Ps. viii. 1 O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is Thy name in | all the earth! || Who hast set thy |

glory a- | bove the | heavens. || Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast Thou ordained strength be- | cause of Thine | enemies, || That Thou mightest still the

enemy | and the a- | venger. 2 When I consider Thy heavens, the I work of Thy I fingers, || The moon and the stars |

which Thou | hast or- | dained; || What is man, that Thou art | mindful of him? ||

And the son of man | that Thou | visitest | him ? 3 For Thou hast made him a little lower | than the | angels, || And hast crowned him with

glory | and — | honor. || Thou madest Him to have dominion over the works of

Thy | hands; || Thou hast put | all things | under . His | feet: 4 All | sheep and / oxen, || Yea, and the I beasts-- | of the field; || The fowl of the

air, and the fish of the | sea, || And whatsoever passeth through the | paths, 1 of

the seas. *5 0 | Lord our | Lord, || How excellent is Thy | name in / all the | earth! 16

Ps. xix. : The heavens declare the ' glory of God; ! And the firmament I showeth -- His

handy | work. || Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto | night showeth | know

ledge. 11 There is no speech nor language, where their | voice- 1 is not heard. 2 Their line is gone out through | all the earth, || And their words to the I end - of

the world. || In them hath He set a tabernacle | for the sun, || Which is as a bride

groom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong | man to / run a race. 3 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the | ends- | of it: ||

And there is nothing I hide from the heat there- | of. || The law of the Lord is perfect, con- | verting the soul: || The testimony of the Lord is sure, | making | wise

the | simple. 4 The statutes of the Lord are right, re- | joicing the I heart: || The commandment of

the Lord is | pure, en- | lightening the eyes. || The fear of the Lord is clean, en- ! during for ever. || The judgments of the Lord are true and I righteous | alto-1

gether. 5 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than | much fine | gold : || Sweeter also

than honey | and the | honey- | comb, || Moreover by them is Thy| servant / warned: ||

ll And in keeping of them I there is great re- | ward. 6 Who can under- | stand his errors? || Cleanse Thou | me from | secret | faults. || Keep

back Thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have do- / minion over me: || Then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent | from the I great trans

gression. *7 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable | in Thy |

sight, ll O Lord, my | Strength, and | my Re- / deemer.

Ps. xxiii.

17 I THE Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not | want. || He maketh me to lie down in green

pastures; He leadeth me beside the still — | waters. 2 He restoreth my soul; He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His | name's .

sake. || Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear

no evil: for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff | they — | comfort me. 3 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies, Thou anointest my

head with oil: my cup runneth | over. || Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord, for ever. 11 A- , men.

1 The earth is the Lord's, and the fulness | thereof;|| The world and they that I

dwell there- | in. || For He hath founded it up-1 on the seas, || And established it

up-1 on the floods. 2 Who shall ascend into the | hill..of the Lord? 11. Or who shall | stand• •in His | holy |

place? || He that hath clean hands, and a | pure -- | heart; | Who hath not lifted

up his soul unto - | vanity, nor | sworn de- | ceitfully. 8 He shall receive the blessing | from the Lord, || And righteousness from the God of 1

his sal- | vation. || This is the generation of them that seek ~ | Him, || That|

seek | Thy | face, Jacob. 11 Lift up your heads, 0 ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye ever- | lasting | doors ; || And the

King of | glory | shall come l in. || Who is this | King of glory? || The Lord, strong

and mighty, the Lord | mighty in battle. 5 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye ever- | lasting | doors; || And the

King of glory I shall come lin. / Who is this | King of | glory? || The Lord of hosts,
He is the King of glory.

Ps. xlii.

19 1 As the hart panteth after the / water / brooks, || So panteth my soul after | Thee - 1

0-1 God. 2 My soul thirsteth for God, for the living | God! || When shall I come and ap- pear be- | fore

| God? 3 My tears have been my meat | day and night, || While they continually say unto me,

| where is | thy — | God? 4 When I re- | member these I things, || 1 pour / out my soul

| in me; 5 For I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, || With

the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that I kept | holy- | day. 6 Why art thou cast down, / O my soul? || And why are thou dis- | quiet- | ed in | me? 7 Hope | thou in God: || For I shall yet praise Him for the help of His - 1 coun

tenance. 8 O send out Thy light and Thy truth: I let them | lead me; || Let them bring me

unto Thy holy hill, and to Thy | taber - na - | cles. 9 Then will I go unto the altar of God, unto God my ex- | ceeding Ijoy: || Yea, upon

the harp will I praise | Thee, O God, my | God. 10 Why art thou cast down, | O my | soul? || And why art Thou dis- | quiet-ed with- |

in me? I Hope | in — God: || For I shall yet praise Him, who is the health of my counte

nance, I and my God.

Ps. xlvi.

20 i God is our | refuge -and | strength, || A very | present help in | trouble. 2 Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, And though the moun

tains be carried | into the midst of the sea. 3 Though the waters thereof | roar and be troubled, || Though the mountains / shake**

with the I swelling there- | of. 4. There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, || The holy

place of the | tabernacles of the Most | High. 5 God is in the midst of her; she shall--not be I moved: || God shall help her, I and -1

that right early. 6 The heathen raged, the kingdoms were | moved: || He uttered His , voice, the

earth — ! melted. 7 The Lord of | Hosts is , with us; || The God of | Jacob | is our | refuge.

Glory be to the Father, &c.

MISERERE MEI, DEUS.

Gregorian ist Tone. Harmonized by Thomas Tallie. (1529–1595.)

Ps. 51.

21 I HAVE mercy upon me, o God, according to Thy | loving- | kindness: || According

unto the multitude of Thy tender mercies | blot out | my trans- | gressions. 2 Wash me thoroughly from / mine in- | iquity, || And | cleanse me | from my | sin. 3 For I acknowledge | my trans- / gressions: || And my / sin is | ever • bc- l forc me. 4 Hide Thy face | from my sins, ll And blot out | all | mine in- | iquities. 5 Create in me a clean | heart, 0 | God; || And renew a right | spirit" -with- | in — | me. 6 Cast me not away | from Thy I presence; || And take not Thy | Holy | Spirit | from me. 7 Restore unto me the joy of | Thy sal- | vation; || And uphold me | with Thy | free - 1

Spirit. 8 Then will I teach trans- | gressors • Thy | ways; || And sinners shall be con- | verted |

unto | Thee. 9 Deliver me from blood-guiltiness, O God, thou God of | my sal- | vation: || And my

tongue shall sing aloud / of Thy | righteous- | ness. 10 O Lord, open | Thou my I lips: || And my mouth shall | shew forth | Thy — | praise. 11 For Thou desirest not sacrifice; | else would I l give it: || Thou delightest | not in /

burnt - | offering. 12 The sacrifices of God are a broken ! spirit: || A broken and contrite heart, O God, I

Thou wilt | not de- spise.

early. 4 I will praise Thee, O Lord, a- | mong the people: || I will sing unto | Thee a- | mong

the nations. 5 For Thy mercy is great | unto the heavens, || And Thy ftruth - | unto the clouds. 6 Be Thou exalted, O God, a- I bove the I heavens; || Let Thy glory be a- | bove ~ | all the | earth.

DEUS, DEUS MEUS.

From Ludwig von Beethoven. (1770—1827.)

Ps. Ixiii.

1

23 1 O GOD, Thou | art my | God; || Early I will I | seek — | Thee: 2 My soul thirsteth for Thee, my flesh | longeth • -for | Thee || In a dry and thirsty land, /

where no water | is; 3 To see Thy power | and Thy | glory, || So as I have seen Thee | in the / sanctu- | ary. 4 Because Thy loving-kindness is better than | life, Il My I lips shall | praise –1 Thee. 5 Thus will I bless Thee / while I | live; || I will lift up my | hands in | Thy- | name. 6 My soul shall be satisfied as with | marrow and | fatness; || And my mouth shall

praise | Thee with | joyful I lips: 7 When I remember Thee up- on my bed, || And meditate on Thee I in the night-|

watches. 8 Because Thou hast | been my | help, ll Therefore in the shadow of Thy | wings will |I

re- 1 joice.

[blocks in formation]

i How amiable are Thy | taber- | nacles, Il Lord - of -hosts! 2 My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the Lord: || My heart and flesh

crieth out for the I living | God. 3 Yea, the sparrow hath found a house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she

may | lay her | young, || Even Thine altars, O Lord of hosts, my | King - 1 and my ]

God. 4 Blessed are they that dwell..in Thy house: || They will be still - praising | Thee. 5 Behold, O God our | Shield, || And look upon the face of Thine A- | nointed. 6 For a day in Thy courts is better | than a | thousand. || I had rather be a doorkeeper in

the house of my God, than to dwell in the / tents of | wicked- | ness. 7 For the Lord God is a | Sun and Shield: || The Lord will give grace and glory: no

good thing will He withhold from them that I walk up- I rightly. 8 O Lord of | hosts, || Blessed is the man that I trusteth-in Thee.
