Psalm 86:14-15

14 O God, the proud are risen against me, and the assemblies of violent men have sought after my soul; and have not set thee before them.

15 But thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious, long suffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.

O God, the proud are risen against me by Thomas Tomkins (1572-1656)

Psalms 90:1-2; 144:3-4; 102:12; 90:15

Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.

Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.

Lord, what is man, that thou takest knowledge of him! or the son of man, that thou makest account of him!

Man is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow that passeth away.

12 But thou, O Lord, shall endure for ever; and thy remembrance unto all generations.

15 Make us glad according to the days wherein thou hast afflicted us, and the years wherein we have seen evil.

Lord Thou hast been our refuge (1917) by Edward Bairstow (1874-1946)

Romans 6:9-11; 1 Corinthians 15:20-22

9 Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.

10 For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.

11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.

21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.

22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

Christ rising again (c. 1550), composed by John Sheppard/Shepherd (1515-1558)

28 Yet have thou respect unto the prayer of thy servant, and to his supplication, O Lord my God, to hearken unto the cry and to the prayer, which thy servant prayeth before thee to day:

30 And hearken thou to the supplication of thy servant, and of thy people Israel, when they shall pray toward this place: and hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place: and when thou hearest, forgive.

Text of music:

O Lord my God, hear thou the pray’r thy servant prayeth, Have thou respect unto his prayer. Hear thou in heav’n thy dwelling place, And when thou hearest Lord, forgive.
