Your resource for singable, recitable Psalm lyrics. Why do fill-in-the-blank Bible studies when you can sing (or recite) your next study together? The Psalms were meant to be sung! Here is a Biblical hymnal meant to develop tried and true Christian living. Prime the fountain of deeper, inquisitive worship with a common prayer book that arches over all denominations because it comes straight from the Psalms. This modern Psalter spreads timeless witness of God's involvement in your wealth and poverty, sickness and betrayal, messed up leaders and those who live faithfully, through every form of worship.
These are the prayers of the shepherd boy turned King David, of the wandering Abraham and Sarah, of the leader Moses and his sister, the prophetess-praise leader, Miriam. Who were the prophets who were forced to sing in exile for their captures? Who were the Sons of Korah who escaped their father's destruction and became prolific songwriters? Find out in this collection of classics. This volume of singable Psalm Hymns includes the first three books of ancient prayers from the Old Testament (Psalm 1 through 89) guiding your own spiritual venture.
Use the liturgy of Queen Esther and the disciples, even Jesus Himself is available.
In a life-time feat, the author has adapted scripture lyrics in verse by verse context to traditional hymn tunes, leaving the interpretive style to your own musical tastes. Use for unique theater or drama presentations, for an emphasis in counseling, for left-brain-right-brain interactive exercises, for character building memory work, or as a pastoral aid. For private meditation and for worship retreats.
Psalm Hymns reflect on the many loving-kindnesses of God, and they also contemplate the odd silences. Raw, classic prayers for a creative's portfolio. From the famous Psalm 5, Psalm 8, Psalm 23, Psalm 19 and Psalm 27 to the obscure Psalms: 1 to 4, or 9 through 17, and Psalms 35 and 36 onward, find yourself responding to the drama of historical pleas of mortal souls together with their worship and praises in singing and recitation. Use this poetry for personal and communal reflection.
"The Psalms are prescribed and authorized for worship throughout God's kingdom, and without them, our worship is censored, uninformed and incomplete." - Timothy Raymond (editor for Credo Magazine, Indiana)
The first three of five volumes of the Davidic Psalms (Hebrew tradition) are set to the rhythm of Christian hymns of the English and American traditions. How would your faith change if you were to sing a psalm a day, evening or morning? How would your community of faith be enriched if you were to include a psalm of historical context, testimony or lament to your services?
"Psalms," in the Hebrew means "Praises." Let the message about the Messiah dwell richly among you, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, and singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, with gratitude in your hearts to God. Colossians 3:16 (HCSB)
The phrase, "teaching and admonishing", means there should be a place in our worship centers for historical education of the Psalms, performance, and discussion. Here, they expressly describe the wonders of God during terrifying events, illness, and betrayal, describing also God’s splendor in nature. They describe human relationships with God during life's miracles.
