Psalm 90:1-2 [Latin: Psalmi 89:1-2]

Lord, Thou hast been our refuge, from generation to generation.

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

Dómine, refúgium factus es nobis a generatióne et progénie. Priusquam montes fierent, aut formaretur terra et orbis, a saeculo et usque in saeculum tu es, Deus. Alleluia.

Domine refugium factus es nobis, composed by Alessandro Scarlatti (1660-1725)

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.
