    Psalm 102 vacillates between utter despair (“I eat ashes as my food and mingle my drink with tears”) and hope in God’s unchanging love and ability to save. This song mirrors these emotions with biting dissonance and brief moments of repose. The recording above is me playing the cello quartet arrangement on my bass. Below is a demo of the more traditional piano accompaniment.

    Commissioned to be sung at the graduation ceremony of Western Theological Seminary, this song captures the exuberance and gratitude of Psalm 103 in an upbeat gospel style. This Psalm is traditionally sung as a thanksgiving song at the conclusion of communion–indeed, Western still uses it regularly in their chapel’s communion–but it also works well as a general song of praise of choral offertory.
    Above is an MP3 of Finale playing back the choral score. Starting at 17:23 in the video below is the anthem being sung as part of Calvin University’s chapel.

    This setting of Psalm 103 fits into the context of Father’s Day because of its reference to a father’s love in the second verse, but it can be sung during any time of worship.

    Wendell Kimbrough’s setting of Psalm 104 won the COS New Psalm Contest in 2014. Since then, I’ve arranged this song for strings, brass, and choir. These arrangements bring out a whole new majestic side to the song.

    My friend Doug Gay wrote this setting of Psalm 104. I wanted a tune that would act as a foil to this text, lightening rather than heightening the majesty of the words. And since Doug is Scottish, what could be better than an airy Celtic tune?

    David Diephouse’s metrical setting of Psalm 107 is paired with a guitar-friendly tune that supports the stress/salvation pattern of the text with a major/minor harmonic sequence. The above MP3 is the Choral Scholars singing the piano accompaniment version. Below is the COS Guitarchestra in a rendition that would be perfect if there were ever an album The Eagles Sing the Psalms. This song also appears in Psalms for All Seasons, 107D.

    Kate Bluett has a knack for writing hymns that are fresh and insightful, yet draw a worshiper’s attention to the subject rather than the words. Her rendering of Psalm 108 captures the hope and confidence of this morning prayer perfectly. The music matches her words with a melody that leaps and dives like a brisk ride through a hilly landscape at sunrise.

    Though a few millennia may obscure some of Psalm 11’s meaning, the theme is still relevant today: life can be scary, and sometimes even what seems reliable can crumble beneath us. Still, God is in control and watches over us. This song recasts Psalm 11’s timeless message in modern language and heartfelt Gospel-style music style.

    The first half of Psalm 113 is lots of beautiful creation imagery, but the second half contains some things that don’t fit as neatly into a modern worship song: God raises the needy from the garbage dump and places them among princes; he gives the barren woman children. I boiled this down to three themes in verse 2: God gives us a place at the table, a place in the kingdom of God, and a place in God’s family. This song is part of my Hallel Psalm cantata, Everlasting to Everlasting.

    Psalm 115 contrasts the God of heaven with idols made by human hands. The true God hears those who pray and deserves all glory, whereas deaf idols are only worth the gold they’re made from.

    This song is part of my Hallel Psalm cantata, Everlasting to Everlasting.
