Deliver us, O Lord, our God…

Looking forward to this upcoming Sunday. It´s the 5th Sunday after the High Feast of the Holy Trinity. The Introit is from Psalm 106. The last two verses serve as antiphone:

Deliver us, O Lord, our God.
Gather us from among the nations.
Then we will give thanks to your holy name,
and boast about your praiseworthy deeds.
The Lord God of Israel deserves praise,
in the future and forevermore.
Let all the people say, “We agree! Praise the Lord!”

Psalm 106,47-48

The first five verses give us the main part of the Introit.

Praise the Lord.
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,
and his loyal love endures.
Who can adequately recount the Lord’s mighty acts,
or relate all his praiseworthy deeds?

Remember me, O Lord, when you show favor to your people
Pay attention to me, when you deliver,
so I may see the prosperity of your chosen ones,
rejoice along with your nation,
and boast along with the people who belong to you.

Psalm 106,1-2.4-5

Here is the first part intoned by Heinrich Schütz (SWV 91) und hier vom großen Meister Johan Sebastian Bach (BWV 374)
