Incense Psalm

Psalm 141

  • Refrain (4 part canon):
    O Lord, let my prayer
    rise to you like incense,
    I raise up my hands
    as an offering to you.
    Verses by reader whilst refrain is sung:
  1. O God, I call on your name,
    hear my voice as I call to you.
  2. Keep watch within my heart,
    O God, stay my voice from evil.
  3. To you I turn my eyes, O God,
    in you I take my refuge.
  4. Give glory to the Father,
    to the Son and Spirit forever.
