Psalm 90:12-14

So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

13 Return, O Lord, how long? and let it repent thee concerning thy servants.

14 O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.

Psalm 54:1-7

Save me, O God, by thy name, and judge me by thy strength.

Hear my prayer, O God; give ear to the words of my mouth.

For strangers are risen up against me, and oppressors seek after my soul: they have not set God before them. Selah.

Behold, God is mine helper: the Lord is with them that uphold my soul.

 

I will freely sacrifice unto thee: I will praise thy name, O Lord; for it is good.

For he hath delivered me out of all trouble: and mine eye hath seen his desire upon mine enemies.


Save meO God Z. 51, (c. 1680) composed by Henry Purcell (1659-1695)

Save me, O God (Psalm 69:1,3,7,10,13-14) – John Blow

John Blow

Psalm 69:1,3,7,10,13-14

Save me, O God; for the waters are come in unto my soul.

I am weary of my crying: my throat is dried: mine eyes fail while I wait for my God.

Because for thy sake I have borne reproach; shame hath covered my face.

10 When I wept, and chastened my soul with fasting, that was to my reproach.

13 But as for me, my prayer is unto thee, O Lord, in an acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation.

14 Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not sink: let me be delivered from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters.


Save me, O God, composed by John Blow (1649-1708)
