  3. 3. Read by Sue Ann Elite1The souls of the righteous are in the hand of God,and no torment will ever touch them. 2In the eyes ofthe foolish they seemed to have died, and theirdeparture was thought to be adisaster, 3and their going from us to be theirdestruction;but they are at peace. 4For though in the sight ofothers they were punished, their hope is full ofimmortality. 5Having been disciplined a little, theywill receive great good, because God tested themand found them worthy of himself; 6like gold in thefurnace he tried them, and like a sacrificial burntoffering heaccepted them. 7In the time of their visitation theywill shine forth, and will run like sparks through thestubble. 8They will govern nations and rule overpeoples, and the Lord will reignover them forever. 9Those who trust in him willunderstand truth, and the faithful will abide with himin love, because grace and mercy are upon his holyones, and he watches over hiselect.Hear what the Spirit is saying to God’s People:Thanks be to God.PSALM 24: 1-6 (Tone VIII.1) The earth is the LORD’S and all that is in it, *the world and all who dwell there-in.

Dalespent hours at the organ making suggestions of registrations andtextures, while Shearing with his critical ear listened foraccuracy. This morning’s organ preludes are from this set ofpieces.Léon Boëllmann (1862-1897) moved in the best circles of theFrench musical world, and as a pleasing personality, he madefriends of many artists and was able to give concerts both inParis and the provinces.
