Chandos Anthem No.7. 'My song shall be alway' 20:31
1 Sonata 3:12
      Soprano & Chorus
2 My song shall be always of the loving kindness of the Lord;… 5:07
      …with my mouth will I ever be shewing thy truth from one generation to another. The Heav'ns shall praise thy wond'rous works, and thy truth in the congregation of the saints.
3 For who is he among the clouds that shall be… 0:33
      …compared unto the Lord? And what is he among the Gods that shall be like unto the Lord?
      Soprano, Tenor & Bass
4 God is very greatly to be feared in the counsel of the saints,… 2:22
      …and to be had in reverence of all that are round about him. O Lord, God of hosts, who is like unto thee? Thy truth, most mighty Lord, is on ev'ry side.
      Alto & Bass Duet
5 The heav'ns are thine, the earth is also thine;… 2:10
      …thou has laid the foundation of the round world.
6 Righteousness and equity are the habitation of thy seat;… 3:13
      …mercy and truth shall go before thy face.
7 Blessed is the people, O Lord, that can rejoice in thee;… 2:42
      …they shall walk in the light of thy countenance.
8 Thou art the glory of their strength. Alleluja. 1:12
Chandos Anthem No.8. 'O come, let us sing unto the Lord' 29:57
9 Sonata 3:58
10 O come, let us sing unto the Lord,… 3:28
      …let us heartily rejoice in the strength of our salvation. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and show ourselves glad in him with psalms. For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all Gods.
11 O come, let us worship and fall down,… 3:43
      …and kneel before the Lord our Maker; for he is the Lord our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.
12 Glory and worship are before him,… 1:48
      …power and honour are in his sanctuary.
      Tenor & Chorus
13 Tell it out among the heathen, that the Lord is King,… 5:51
      …and that he made the world so fast it cannot be moved.
14 O magnify the Lord, and worship him upon his holy hill,… 3:36
      …for the Lord our God is holy.
15 The Lord preserveth the souls of the saints,… 2:59
      …he shall deliver them from the hand of the ungodly.
16 For look as high as the heaven is in comparison of the earth,… 2:00
      …so great is his mercy towards them that fear him.
17 There is sprung up a light for the righteous,… 2:34
      …and joyful gladness for such as are true-hearted. Rejoice in the Lord, ye righteous!
Chandos Anthem No.9. 'O Praise the Lord with one consent' 24:13
18 O praise the Lord with one consent, 5:12
      and magnify his name!
      Let all the servants of the Lord,
      his worthy praise proclaim!
19 Praise him, all ye that in his house 3:09
      attend with constant care,
      with those that to his utmost courts
      with humble zeal repair.
20 For this our truest int'rest is 2:30
      glad hymns of praise to sing,
      and with loud songs to bless his name,
      a most delightful thing.
21 That God is great we often have 2:31
      by glad experience found;
      and seen how he with wondrous power
      above all Gods is crowned.
22 With cheerful notes let all the earth 3:24
      to heaven their voices raise!
      Let all, inspired with godly mirth,
      sing solemn hymns with praise.
23 God's tender mercy knows no bounds, 2:54
      his truth shall ne'er decay.
      Then let the willing nations round
      their greatful tribute pay.
24 Ye boundless realms of joy 2:25
      exalt your Maker's fame;
      his praise your song employ
      above the starry frame.
25 Your voices raise, 2:08
      ye Cherubim and Seraphim,
      to sing his praise!
