Epiphany 3 - 27 January 2013

  • Adagio (from Concerto in B flat) – Johann Walther 
  • Entrance Hymn 474 “Jesus, where’er thy people meet” 
  • Service Music: New Plainsong – David Hurd 
  • Psalm 19 (Tone III.4)
    The heavens declare the glo-ry of God, *
    and the firmament shows his hand-i-work.
    One day tells its tale to a-no-ther, *
    and one night imparts knowledge to a-no-ther.

    Although they have no words or lan-guage, *
    and their voices are not heard,
    Their sound has gone out in-to all lands, *
    and their message to the ends of the world.

    In the deep has he set a pa-vi-lion for the sun; *
    it comes forth like a bridegroom out of his chamber /
    it rejoices like a champion to run its course.
    It goes forth from the uttermost edge of the heavens
    and runs about to the end of it a-gain; *
    nothing is hidden from its burn-ing heat.

    The law of the LORD is perfect and re-vives the soul; *
    the testimony of the LORD is sure and gives wisdom to the in-no-cent. The statutes of the LORD are just and re-joice the heart; *
    the commandment of the LORD is clear and gives light to the eyes.

    The fear of the LORD is clean and en-dures for e-ver; *
    the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous al-to-ge-ther.
    More to be desired are they than gold / more than much fine gold, * sweeter far than honey / than ho-ney in the comb.
    By them also is your ser-vant en-light-ened, *
    and in keeping them there is great re-ward.
    Who can tell how of-ten he of-fends? *
    cleanse me from my se-cret faults.

    Above all keep your servant from presumptuous sins /
    let them not get do-mi-nion o-ver me; *
    then shall I be whole and sound and innocent of a great of-fense.
    Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be ac-cept-a-ble in your sight, *
    O LORD, my strength and my re-dee-mer.

    Glory be to the Fa-ther and to the Son, and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit.
    As it was in the beginning is now and e-ver shall be,
    world without end. Amen.

    5 Your love, O LORD, reaches to the hea-vens, *

    6 Your righteousness is like the strong mountains /
    your justice like the great deep; *
    you save both man and beast O LORD.
    7 How priceless is your love O God! *
    your people take refuge under the shadow of your wings.
    8 They feast upon the abundance of your house; *
