Suggestions for Use: The entire Psalm and Antiphon may be sung in unison or by a soloist, switching from Part I to II in measure 17. The choir may divide by voice part or antiphonally and may be positioned at opposite sides of the sanctuary. The descant is optional and if used should be added after the second verse.
Optional handbell parts (two octaves) are also available.
Based on Psalm 116: 12-19.

Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of God’s servants.

you have freed me from my bonds.
I will offer you the sacrifice of thanksgiving and call upon the name of the Lord.
I will fulfill my vows to the Lord in the presence of all God’s people,
in the courts of the Lord’s house, O Jerusalem, Alleluia!
