Psalm 19:8a,10b-11a [Latin]

8 The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.

10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.

Music text:

8a The statutes of the Lord are right, and rejoice the heart

10b his judgments sweeter also than honey, and the honey-comb.

11a For thy servant keeps them.

 Justitiae Domini rectae, composed in 1708 by Alessandro Scarlatti (1660-1725)
