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)

Denn wir haben hie keine bleibende Stadt [For here have we no continuing city], from Ein deutsches Requiem [A German Requiem] (Hebrews 13:14; 1 Corinthians 15:51-52,54-55; Revelation 4:11) – Johannes Brahms

Hebrews 13:14; 1 Corinthians 15:51-52,54-55; Revelation 4:11 [German]

14 For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.

51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

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.

54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

Denn wir haben hie keine bleibende Stadt (1866) from Ein deutsches Requiem, nach Worten der heiligen Schrift [A German Requiem, To Words of the Holy Scriptures] Op. 45, by Johannes Brahms (1833-1897)
