Chandos Anthems, Vol. 4
GEORGE FRIDERIC HANDEL
Chandos Anthem No.10. 'The Lord is my light'
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom then shall I fear? The Lord is
the strength of my life; of whom then shall I be afraid?
Though an host of men were laid against me, yet shall my heart not be
afraid; though there rose up war against me, yet will I put my trust in him.
One thing have I desired of the Lord, which I will require: that I may dwell in
the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behond the fair beauty of the
Lord, and to visit his temple.
I will will offer in his dwelling an oblation with great gladness, I will sing and
speak praises unto the Lord.
For who is God but the Lord? Or who has any strength but the Lord? The
earth trembled, and quak'd, the very foundation also of the hills shook, and
were removed; he cast forth lightnings, and gave his tunder, and destroy'd
The Lord is my strength and my shield, my heart has trusted in him and I
am helped. Therefore my heart danceth for joy, and in my song will I praise
It is the Lord that ruleth the sea, the Lord sitteth above the water flood, and
the Lord remaineth a king for ever.
Sing praises unto the Lord, O ye saints of his, and give thanks unto him for
a remembrance of his holiness.
I will remember thy name from one generation to another; therefore shall the
people give thanks unto thee world without end. Amen.
Chandos Anthem No.11. 'Let God arise'
Let God aris, and let his enemies be scattr'd; let them also that hate him,
flee before him.
Like as the smoke vanisheth, so shalt thou drive them away; like as max
melteth at the fire, so let the ungodly perish at the presence of God.
Let the righteous be glad, and rejoice before God; let them also be merry
O sing unto God, and sing praises unto his name.
Praised be the Lord!
At thy rebuke, O God, both the chariot and horse are fall'n.
Blessed be God, Alleluja.
