Psalm 43:1-5 (Psalmi 42)
This metrical version of the text was used for the music:

I will go to the altar of God, the God of my gladness and joy.

God, plead my cause and judge me the nations ’round me press:
save me from deceitful men,O send to me redress.

In you I take my refuge; why cast me off distressed?
Why must I walk mourn- fully by th’ enemy oppressed?

Send out your light, your truth, Lord; let them be guides to me;
bring me to your holy hill; To where your dwelling be.

My soul, why are you downcast and within me complain?
Wait for God, my savior and help, whom I shall praise again.

I will go to the altar of God, composed by Massimo Scapin (b. 1968)

Sung by St. Cecilia Choir at St. John Cantius Church in Chicago
