Psalm 51:11,12,17,8

11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.

12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.

17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.


Cast me not away (1848), composed by Samuel Sebastian Wesley (1810-1876)


Performed by The Choir of Lincoln College (Oxford), conductor Christopher Eastwood

Psalm 119:105-108,110-111

105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

106 I have sworn, and I will perform it, that I will keep thy righteous judgments.

107 I am afflicted very much: quicken me, O Lord, according unto thy word.

108 Accept, I beseech thee, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O Lord, and teach me thy judgments.

110 The wicked have laid a snare for me: yet I erred not from thy precepts.

111 Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever: for they are the rejoicing of my heart.


Thy word is a lantern, Z. 61, composed by Henry Purcell (1659-1695)
