Three Psalms – SATB, 11'

Psalm 95


"Commissioned to the glory of God in honor of the 80th year of ministry of Wauwatosa Presbyterian Church, Martha Dodds Stoner, Director of Music."

O come, let us sing to the Lord;
let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!

Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving;
let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!

His hands are the depths of the earth,
and the heights of the mountains.

For he is our God,
and we the people of his pasture,
and the sheep of his hand.

O come, let us worship, come let us bow down,
let us kneel before the Lord, for he is our Maker!

The sea is his, for he made it;
and his hands formed the dry land.

O that today you would hearken to his voice!

[m]
How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
[n]
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.



Psalm 146


Praise the Lord
O my soul.

Let all that I am praise the Lord.

Joyful are those who have God as their helper,
whose hope is in the Lord their God.

He made heaven and earth, and the sea and all that is in them.
He keeps the truth forever.

He gives justice to the oppressed and food to the hungry.
The Lord frees the prisoners.
The Lord opens the eyes of the blind.
The Lord lifts up those who are weighed down.
