Antiphons from Vêpres du Commun: Marcel Dupré
II. His Left Hand Is Under My Head, and His Right Hand Doth Embrace Me
III. O Ye Daughters of Jerusalem
V. How Fair and How Pleasant Art Thou
Maria Louise Baum
If the Lord build not the house
They that labor build in vain;
Father, may our corner stone
Stand foursquare, without a stain.
Make our planting timely, true,
Governed by a power benign;
Nourish by a heavenly dew
All the branches and the vine.
Fruitful shall our tillage be,
Known the work of perfect Mind,
Leaves be gathered from the tree
For the healing of mankind.
Cleansing men of fear and hate,
Lifting hope above the sod,
Truth will summon, soon or late,
All the earth to worship God.
All my hope on God is founded;
Day by day my trust is new.
Through the trials of life He guides me,
Only good and only true.
God alone, dearly known,
Calls my heart to be His own.
Earthly treasures, pride and glory,
Human power and worldly trust,
Though with care and toil are builded,
In the end will fall to dust.
But God's power, hour by hour,
Is my temple and my tower.
Daily does th'almighty Giver
Bounteous gifts on us bestow.
Love's desire our soul delighteth,
Joy attends us where we go.
Blessings stand at God's hand,
Healing flows at Love's command.
Now from man to God eternal
Endless thanks and praise be sung.
Hearts made new are anthems raising
Through the love of Christ, His Son.
Hear God's call, one and all,
We who follow shall not fall.
Arr. by William Cameron, adapted
Supreme in wisdom as in power,
The Rock of Ages stands;
Canst thou not search His word, and trace
The working of His hands?
He gives the conquest to the meek,
Supports the fainting heart;
And courage in the evil hour
His heavenly aids impart.
Mere human energy shall faint,
And youthful vigor cease;
But those who wait upon the Lord
In strength shall still increase.
They, with unwearied step, shall tread
The path of life divine;
With growing ardor onward move,
With growing brightness shine.
Lord God, Now Be Praised, BWV 601 Johann Sebastian Bach
Prelude & Fugue in A minor, BWV 559
