Psalm 60:1-2,11-12

O God, thou hast cast us off, thou hast scattered us, thou hast been displeased; O turn thyself to us again.

Thou hast made the earth to tremble; thou hast broken it: heal the breaches thereof; for it shaketh.

11 Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.

12 Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.

O God Thou hast cast us out, composed by Henry Purcell (1659-1695)

Psalm 63:1-5,8

O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;

To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.

Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.

Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.

My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:

My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.

O God, Thou Art my God, composed by Henry Purcell (1659-1695)

Psalm 69:29; Exodus 34:6-7 [German]

29 But I am poor and sorrowful: let thy salvation, O God, set me up on high.

And the Lord passed by before him, and proclaimed, The Lord, The Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth,

Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.

Ich aber bin elend (composed 1889) Op. 110, No. 1, from Drei Motetten, Op. 110 [Three Motets], composed by Johannes Brahms (1833-1897)
