Psalm 19 (Let the Words of My Mouth)

Psalm 19:7-11 & 14
King James Version

Verse 1
Let the words of my mouth
And the meditation of my heart,
Be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD.

Verse 2
The law of the LORD is perfect,
Converting the soul:
The testimony of the LORD is sure,
Making wise the simple.
More to be desired are they than gold,
Yea, than much fine gold:
Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

Verse 3
The statutes of the LORD are right,
Rejoicing the heart:
The commandment of the LORD is pure,
Enlightening the eyes.
More to be desired are they than gold,
Yea, than much fine gold:
Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

Verse 4
The fear of the LORD is clean,
Enduring for ever:
The judgments of the LORD are true
And righteous altogether.
More to be desired are they than gold,
Yea, than much fine gold:
Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

Moreover by them is thy servant warned:
And in keeping of them there is great reward,
And in keeping of them there is great reward!

Words: Martin Luther
Music: Christopher Miner

From the depths of woe I raise to Thee
The voice of lamentation;
Lord, turn a gracious ear to me
And hear my supplication;
If Thou iniquities dost mark,
Our secret sins and misdeeds dark,

Verse 2
To wash away the crimson stain,
Grace, grace alone availeth;
Our works, alas! Are all in vain;
In much the best life faileth;
No man can glory in Thy sight,
All must alike confess Thy might,

(Men:) And live alone by mercy
    (women:) Live alone by mercy
(Men:) And live alone by mercy
    (Women:) Live alone by mercy

Therefore my trust is in the Lord,

On Him my soul shall rest, His word
Upholds my fainting spirit;
His promised mercy is my fort,
My comfort and my sweet support;

What though I wait the live-long night,
Until the dawn appeareth,
My heart still trusteth in His might;
It doubteth not nor feareth;
Do thus, O ye of Israel’s seed,
Ye of the Spirit born indeed;

Chorus
(Men:) And wait ’til God appeareth
    (Women:) Wait ’til God appeareth
(Men:) And wait ’til God appeareth
    (Women) Wait ’til God appeareth

Though great our sins and sore our woes
His grace much more aboundeth;
His helping love no limit knows,
Our upmost need it soundeth.
Our Shepherd good and true is He,
Who will at last His children free

Chorus
(Men:) From all their sin and sorrow
    (Women:) All their sin and sorrow
(Men:) From all their sin and sorrow
    (Women:) All their sin and sorrow

1 Kings 18:36-39

And it came to pass at the time of the
Offering of the evening sacrifice,
That Elijah the prophet came near, and said,
LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel,
Let it be known this day that
Thou art God in Israel,
And that I am Thy servant,
And that I have done all these things at Thy Word.
Hear me, O LORD, hear me…

That this people may know
That Thou art the LORD God,
And that Thou hast turned their heart back again.
Then the fire of the LORD fell,
And consumed the burnt sacrifice,
And the wood, and the stones, and the dust,
And licked up the water that was in the trench.
And when all the people saw it,
They fell on their faces:
And they said, the Lord, He is the God;
The LORD, He is the God.
