Ministry of Music "I Waited For the Lord" (Felix Mendelssohn)
Julie (mom) and Jacque (daughter) Hines, duet; Stan Workman, accompanist
I waited for the Lord,
He inclined unto me,
He heard my complaint.
O blessed are they that hope and trust in the Lord!
Psalm 42 (from the 1928 edition of the Book of Common Prayer)
Like as the hart (or deer) desireth the water-brooks,
so longeth my soul after Thee, O God.
My soul is athirst for God,
yea, even for the living God:
When shall I come to appear before the presence of God?
My tears have been my meat day and night,
while they daily say unto me:
Where is now thy God?
Now when I think thereupon,
I pour out my heart by myself;
For I went with the multitude,
and brought them forth into the house of God;
In the voice of praise and thanksgiving,
among such as keep holy-day.
Why art thou so full of heaviness, O my soul?
and why art thou so disquieted within me?
Put thy trust in God;
for I will yet give Him thanks for the help of his countenance.
Sermon: By Special Request - Psalm 42 (from Stan Workman)
Hymn: "Be Still, O My Soul"
