Notes: Hymn stanzas sung as responsorial refrains to reading or chanting of text of Psalm 144, Tone included for chanting. The stanzas of this Lutheran chorale O HEILAND, REISS have been reordered to reflect the development within the psalm. The stanzas may be sung together as a response to the reading of the entire psalm, or they may be interwoven with the chanting or reading of the selected verses presented below the hymn. This framing of the psalm is particularly fitting for celebrations of Advent or the Reign of Christ and in conjunction with sermons dealing with the Second Advent.
