Psalm 121:1-8

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.

My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.

He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.

Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.

The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.

The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.

The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.


A song of trust, from Bible Songs, Op. 113 (1909), composed by Charles Villiers Stanford (1852-1924)

O clap your hands (Psalm 47:1-2,5-8) – Ralph Vaughan Williams

Vaughan Williams circa 1920

Vaughan Williams c. 1920

Psalm 47:1-2,5-8

O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph.

For the Lord most high is terrible; he is a great King over all the earth.

God is gone up with a shout, the Lord with the sound of a trumpet.

Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises.

For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding.

God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness.


O clap your hands (1920), composed by Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958)

Lamentations 1:6-7 [Latin]

And from the daughter of Zion all her beauty is departed: her princes are become like harts that find no pasture, and they are gone without strength before the pursuer.

Jerusalem remembered in the days of her affliction and of her miseries all her pleasant things that she had in the days of old, when her people fell into the hand of the enemy, and none did help her: the adversaries saw her, and did mock at her sabbaths.


Et egressus est (published in the collection of Livro de Vários Motetes [Book of Various Motets] in 1648]), composed by Manuel Cardoso (1566-1650)
