Matthew 21:10-12a

10 And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this?

11 And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.

Save me, O God (Psalm 69:1,3,7,10,13-14) – John Blow

John Blow

Psalm 69:1,3,7,10,13-14

Save me, O God; for the waters are come in unto my soul.

I am weary of my crying: my throat is dried: mine eyes fail while I wait for my God.

Because for thy sake I have borne reproach; shame hath covered my face.

10 When I wept, and chastened my soul with fasting, that was to my reproach.

13 But as for me, my prayer is unto thee, O Lord, in an acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation.

14 Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not sink: let me be delivered from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters.


Save me, O God, composed by John Blow (1649-1708)

Et vidi angelum [I saw an angel] (Revelation 20:1-3) – Marco Galvani

 

The Angel Binding Satan (c. 1797) - by Philip James de Loutherbourg

The Angel Binding Satan (c. 1797) – by Philip James de Loutherbourg

Revelation 20:1-3 [Latin]

And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.

And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,

And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.


Et vidi angelum, composed by Marco Galvani (b. 1994)
