Description

SATB Choir - An old warhorse (in the go,Od sense!) and one you may have forgotten about. The slow section at the beginning is contrasted by an Allegro Giusto just when you think you can't stand any more slow pieces during Lent (no Alleluias in this one, thank you). Easy for the choir and great fun to sing!

Psalm 71:12, 8, 7

Lyrics

Go not far from me, far from me, O God;
cast me not away in the time of age,
Forsake me not when my strength faileth me.

O let my mouth be filled with thy praise:
that I may sing, thy glory and honor all the day long.
