This setting of Psalm 145, verses 1 to 3, was written in 1969 for a disc Scriptures of Worship, released by Scripture in Song. It has been revised several times, the latest being in 1991, when the organ accompaniment was added. The piano accompaniment may be used to support congregational singing, or to accompany a choir singing the two parts. It may even be used with the organ accompaniment. (The style of the organ part is such as to contrast with rather than follow the piano part.) The organ accompaniment does not carry the air, and should not be used on its own to carry congregational singing. The parts have been written with a small range, so as to suit most voices. There are a couple of divisi sections in which one of the lines may be omitted according to the capabilities of the choir. As a result, the arrangement should be accessible to just about any group of singers. The text is as follows: I will extol thee, my God and King, and bless Thy Name for ever. Every day I will bless thee and praise Thy Name, and bless Thy Name for ever. Great is the Lord, and his greatness unsearchable. I will extol Thee, my God and King, and bless Thy Name for ever.
