Introit, 12th Sunday of the Year

Here is a recording of the entrance antiphon from this morning's English ordinary form Mass, Sacred Music Colloquium XIX.

Antiphon: "The Lord is the strength of His people, and the protector of the salvation of His anointed: save, O Lord, thy people, and bless Thine inheritance, and rule them forever."

Verse 1: "Unto thee will I cry, O Lord: O my God, be not Though silent to me, lest if Thou be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit."

Verse 2: "My heart hath said to thee: My face hath sought thee. They face O Lord, willI seek. Turn not away they face from me."

Verse 3: "I believe to see the good things of the Lord in the land of the living. Expect the Lord: and let thy heart take courage: and wait thou for the Lord."
