A setting of the frequently-used Psalm 125(126).
An alternative refrain – Those who sow in tears will sing when they reap – is provided. This is the Lectionary psalm for St George’s feast day; it could also be used for commemorations of martyrs.
To maintain the imagery of the verses, the refrain may be omitted between the odd and even numbered verses. Verses 1 and 3 have different melodies to verses 2 and 4.
This setting was first used publicly for the Romero Trust celebration of Blessed Oscar Romero’s beatification in Southwark Cathedral, London in August 2015.
Instrumentation: Keyboard, guitar
