22D. Psalm 22 (A Responsorial Setting)

Text Information
First Line: My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
Title: Psalm 22 (A Responsorial Setting)
Publication Date: 2012
Topic: Assurance; Biblical Names and Places: Israel; Biblical Names and Places: Jacob (31 more...)
Source: Evangelical Lutheran Worship (Psalm text)
Notes: Responsorial refrain to reading of Psalm 22. Tone included for chanting. The first refrain is especially appropriate when focusing on the first half of the psalm, particularly in conjunction with Christ’s passion. It comes from a larger composition by Val Parker titled “My God, My God, Why Have You Abandoned Me.” The full composition can be found in Psalms from the Soul, Vol. 2 (Oregon Catholic Press). The alternate refrain is appropriate when focusing on the second part of the psalm. See 88A and 88B for other refrains appropriate for lament and Good Friday uses of vv. 1-21. See 150B and 150G for other refrains appropriate for praise or Easter uses of vv. 22-31.
