671 On Thee each living soul awaits; from Thee, O LORD,

all seek their food; Thou openest Thy hand, and fillest all with good; But when Thy face, O LORD, is hid, with sudden terror

they are struck. Thou tak'st their breath away, they vanish into dust. Thou sendest forth Thy breath again, and life with vigour

fresh returns ; Revived earth unfolds new strength and new delights. Achieved is the glorious work; our song let be the praise

of GOD. Glory to His Name for ever. He sole on high, exalted

reigns. Hallelujah.
(From the Creation," Nos. 27A, 27B.) F. J. HAYDN.

672 Insanæ et vanæ curæ invadunt mentes nostras. Sæpe furore replent corda, privata spe.

Quid prodest, O mortalis, conari pro mundanis, si coelos negligas? Sunt fausta tibi cuncta, si Deus est pro te.

(Sometimes sung to the following words.)

Distracted with care and anguish,
When hearts despairing languish,
Madly they seek for comfort
Where it doth ne'er abide.
For us no rest remaineth,
If earth our love retaineth,
And heaven we cast aside;
Relief he only gaineth,
And peace at last attaineth,
Whom God vouchsafes to guide.


673 LORD CHRIST, when Thou hadst overcome the sharpness of death, Thou didst open the Kingdom of Heaven to all believers.

No. I

THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO." Lamb of GOD! Surely Thou hast borne our sorrows; with Thy stripes we are healed.

Lamb of GOD! Thou blessest them that persecute Thee, and prayest for them who despitefully use Thee.

Vengeance is Mine, saith the LORD, I will repay.

A lamb before her shearers is dumb, so Thou openest not Thy mouth.

Thou art cut off from the land of the living; for our transgressions art Thou smitten.

Thou art oppressed; Thou art afflicted; O Lamb of GOD!

But Thou didst no violence, nor was deceit in Thy mouth.

Lamb of GOD! Thou blessest them that persecute Thee; with Thy stripes we are healed. Thou didst no evil.

Thou, when reviled, reviledst not again ; Thou, suffering, threatenedst not.

Thou bearest our sins in Thy Body on the tree.

Thou art not overcome of evil; but Thou overcomest evil with good.

Reviled, Thou blessest, defamed, entreatest, O Lamb of GOD!


DAY SHALT THOU BE WITH ME IN PARADISE." PSALM li. I. LORD, have mercy on me after Thy great goodness; I acknowledge my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me.

Hide Thy face from my sins.
