By your name, O God, now save me;
grant me justice by your might.
As I pray to you, now hear me;
keep me safe within your sight.
Strangers have come up against me,
violent in deed and word.
They are seeking to destroy me;
they do not regard the LORD.
ENGADINE was included in Frizzoni's Canzuns Spirituaelas (1765); the tune is named after the valley of the Inn River in eastern Switzerland. Shaped in rounded bar form (AABA'), this Italian tune needs the sense of one broad beat per measure. The color of the four-part harmonization helps in congregational singing.
