    PSALM 9
    Music Resources Vol. 3- Psalm settings :Psalm 9 p13 , Psalm 9 p14

    PSALM 133
    The following paraphrase of Psalm 133 by David Schütz is sung to the tune ‘A New Commandment’. Use the music in ATN 65; the tune at LHS 853 is slightly different. It is also at TIS 699. (Note: the word ‘oil’ is pronounced with one syllable here.) If reproducing this version, please put ‘Words (c) David Schütz’ at the beginning or the end of the psalm.

    How good and pleasant it is when we live
    just like brothers and sisters, together as one,
    just like brothers and sisters, together as one.
    It’s like precious oil poured out on the head of Aaron,
    and down his beard onto his vestments.
    It’s like dew of Hermon descending on Mount Zion,
    where God gives life to those he blesses.

  • ANDREW VAN HOMRIGH

    TO WHOM THIS MAY CONCERN. I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A REQUEST AND A QUESTION.

    MY QUESTION IS: “WHY IS IT THAT YOU ONLY CHOOSE THE MUSIC AND READINGS ONLY 2 WEEKS AHEAD?”

    REQUEST: “WOULD IT BE POSSIBLE TO HAVE ALL DETAILS OF HYMNS, READINGS, ETC., AT LEAST ONE MONTH TO TWO MONTHS AHEAD OF THE DATE?”

    I LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR REPLY.

    YOURS SINCERELY,
    ANDREW VAN HOMRIGH A.T.C.L. (ORGANIST)

  • Trudi

    Hi Andrew. Sorry, it’s just not possible to have these resources ready any further ahead than 2 weeks due to the editing and checking processes that they all must undergo before publishing. And there’s only so much one person can do one day a week! You can find song suggestions for each Sunday of the lectionary on the LCA website here: http://www.lca.org.au/sunday-by-sunday-(lca-worship-resources).html . And you can download the lectionary for year B here: http://www.lca.org.au/seasonal-helps–lectionaries.html

  • Rev. Lee Legg

    Dear Andrew,
    We United Methodist in the USA have such a book. “Prepare” is printed for all churches using the Revised Common Lectionary. It can be purchased through Cokesbury and is printed by Abingdon Press.

  • ANDREW VAN HOMRIGH

    Dear Trudi and Rev. Lee Legg,
    I thank you both for your replies to my message that I had put on here
    on June 11, 2012. Both of your answers were helpful, thank you.

    I am from a Parish Church here in Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia.

    Regards, Andrew.
