Notes: Approach this setting with a slower tempo. The tune can carry the profundity of the psalm, but because it is so well known there is a danger of it being sung superficially and too quickly. The triplets can help to keep the tempo in check, but they may be left out according to the context. To signal the change in character at st. 3, consider singing it in canon at the measure, moving into harmony for st. 4.
