Category: Psalm 91
1. He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. 3. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. 4. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. 5. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; 6. Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. 7. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. 8. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. 9. Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; 10. There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. 11. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. 12. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. 13. Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. 14. Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. 15. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. 16. With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
1. Ye servants of the Lord, each in his office wait, observant of his heavenly word, and watchful at his gate.
2. Let all your lamps be bright, and trim the golden flame; gird up your loins as in his sight, for aweful is his name.
3. Watch! ’tis your Lord’s command, and while we speak, he’s near; mark the first signal of his hand, and ready all appear.
4. O happy servant he in such a posture found! he shall his Lord with rapture see, and be with honour crowned.
5. Christ shall the banquet spread with his own royal hand, and raise that faithful servant’s head amid the angelic band.

Usage: General, Advent
Composer: From Johannes Leisentritt’s “Catholicum Hymnologium Germanicum” 1584
Let all the earth, all time and space, all people, everywhere, come make the Lord your dwelling place, come, try and trust God’s care. God, I’ll sing praises to your name, and in your strength rejoice; when your salvation is my theme, exalted be my voice!
You give the angels charge to keep my feet in all your ways; they watch my pillow while I sleep, and guard my waking days. Their hands shall bear me, lest I fall and dash against the stones; are they not servants at your call, to guard your faithful ones?
“Because you set your love on me, I’ll save you,” (says the Lord); “I’ll keep your soul most willingly, with my all-powerful word. For those to whom my name is known, I’ll honour them in heaven; there my salvation shall be shown, and endless life be given.”
