Luke 2:48b-49b and Psalm 84:1-2,4

48 And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing.

49 And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?

1 How amiable are thy tabernacles, O Lord of hosts!

My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the Lord: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.

Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: they will be still praising thee. Selah.

Mein Sohn, warum hast du uns das getan, SWV 401, composed by Heinrich Schütz, first published in Symphoniae sacrae III, Op. 12, no. 4 (1650)
