2 O be joyful in the Lord, all ye lands: 2:00
3 Serve the Lord with gladness, and come from his presence with a song. 2:12
Soprano & Duet
4 Be ye sure that the Lord he is God; it is he that has made us, and now we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. 2:36
5 O go your way into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and speak good of his Name. 3:14

10 In the Lord I put my trust! How say you then to my soul she shall flee as a bird unto the hill? 4:07
11 God is a constant sure defence against oppressing rage, as troubles rise, his needful aids in our behalf egage. 2:70
12 Behold! The wicked bend their bow, and ready fix their dart, lurking in ambush to destroy the man of upright heart. 2:44
13 But God, who hears the suff'ring pow'r, and their oppression knows, will soon arise and give them rest in spite of all their foes. 2:22
14 Snares, fire and brimstone on their heads shall in one tempest show'r: this dreaful mixture his revenge into their cup shall pour. 1:36
15 The righteous Lord will righteous deeds with signal favour grace, and to the upright man disclose the brightness of his face. 2:05
16 Then shall my song, with praise inspir'd, to thee my God ascend, who to thy servants in distress such bounty didst extend. 2:21

Chandos Anthem No.3. 'Have mercy upon me' 19:34
17 Sonata 3:26
18 Have mercy upon me, O God, after thy great goodness: according to the multitude of thy mercies do away mine offences. 3:59
Soprano & Tenor. Duet
19 Wash me thoroughly from my wickedness: and cleanse me from my sin. 2:55
20 For I acknowledge my faults: and my sin is ever before me. 0:44
21 Against thee only have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified in thy saying, and clear'd when thou art judg'd. 1:36
22 Thou shalt make me hear of joy and gladness: that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice. 2:16
23 Make me a clean heart, O God: and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from the presence: and take not thy holy spirit from me. OI give me the comfort of thy help again: and stablish me with thy free Spirit. 2:41
24 Then shall I teach Thy ways unto the wicked: and sinners shall be converted unto Thee. 1:57
