Psalm 94:1-2; 3,6-7; 17,19; 22-23

(I. Grave – Larghetto)

1 O Lord, God of vengeance, O God of vengeance, shine forth!

2 Rise up, O judge of the earth; repay to the proud what they deserve!

(II. Allegro con fuoco)

3 O Lord, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked exult?

6 They kill the widow and the sojourner, and murder the fatherless;

7 and they say, “The Lord does not see; the God of Jacob does not perceive.”

(III. Adagio)

17 If the Lord had not been my help, my soul would soon have lived in the land of silence.

19 When the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul.

(IV. Allegro)

22 But the Lord has become my stronghold, and my God the rock of my refuge.

23 He will bring back on them their iniquity and wipe them out for their wickedness; the Lord our God will wipe them out.
