Psalm 51:11,12,17,8

11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.

12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.

17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.


Cast me not away (1848), composed by Samuel Sebastian Wesley (1810-1876)


Performed by The Choir of Lincoln College (Oxford), conductor Christopher Eastwood

O Lord, Thou art my God (Is. 25:1,25:4a, Ps. 33:21-22, Is. 25:8, 1 Cor. 15:53b, 1 Cor. 15:34a, 1 Cor.15:52a, Is.25:9) – Samuel Sebastian Wesley

Isaiah 25:1,25:4a, Psalm 33:21-22,Isaiah 25:8, 1 Corinthians 15:53b, 1 Corinthians 15:34a, 1 Corinthans 15:52a, Isaiah 25:9

O Lord, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.

For thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall.

21 For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.

22 Let thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.

He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the Lord hath spoken it.

53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

34 Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.

52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the Lord; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.


O Lord, Thou art my God (first performed in 1839) composed by Samuel Sebastian Wesley (1810-1876)

The wilderness and the solitary place (Isaiah 35:1-2,4,6,8,10) – Samuel Sebastian Wesley

Samuel_Sebastian_Wesley9Isaiah 35:1-2,4,6,8,10

The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.

It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the Lord, and the excellency of our God.

Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you.

Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.

And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.

10 And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

The wilderness and the solitary place (1832), composed by Samuel Sebastian Wesley (1810-1876)

Ascribe unto the Lord (Psalm 96:7–8a,9b–10a,10c,9a,2,3b,5a; Psalm 115:4–8,3,12,13,15a,14b,15b) – Samuel Sebastian Wesley

Samuel Sebastian Wesley

Psalm 96:7–8a,9b–10a,10c,9a,2,3b,5a; Psalm 115:4–8,3,12,13,15a,14b,15b

Sing unto the Lord, bless his name; shew forth his salvation from day to day.

Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people.

For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the Lord made the heavens.

Give unto the Lord, O ye kindreds of the people, give unto the Lord glory and strength.

Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come into his courts.

O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness: fear before him, all the earth.

10 Say among the heathen that the Lord reigneth: the world also shall be established that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the people righteously.

But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.

Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands.

They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not:

They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not:

They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat.

They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them.

12 The Lord hath been mindful of us: he will bless us; he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron.

13 He will bless them that fear the Lord, both small and great.

14 The Lord shall increase you more and more, you and your children.

15 Ye are blessed of the Lord which made heaven and earth.
