O Lord, rebuke me not (Psalm 6:1-4) – William Croft

 

William Croft

Psalm 6:1-4

Lord, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.

Have mercy upon me, O Lord; for I am weak: O Lord, heal me; for my bones are vexed.

My soul is also sore vexed: but thou, O Lord, how long?

Return, O Lord, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies’ sake.

O Lord, rebuke me not, published in Musica Sacra, vol. 1 (1724), composed by William Croft (1678-1727)


Performed by Sidney Sussex College Choir, Directed by David Skinner
