    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.

    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.

    For this setting of Psalm 116, I kept pruning until nothing remained but the simplest, most pure form of the Psalm’s message.

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

    This, the shortest of Psalms, is made up of two, diminutive sections. The first is a call to all people of the world to praise God, the second gives the reason for praise: God’s steadfast love. This song is part of my Hallel Psalm cantata, Everlasting to Everlasting.

    This last song from my Hallel Psalm cantata, Everlasting to Everlasting, is a setting of Psalm 118. This song is a slow burn—it sneaks up on you rather than grabbing you by the collar and shaking you. Use it like you would a song from Taizé, to accompany communion or as part of a contemplative service, for example.

    Psalm 12 is a difficult Psalm, with abrasive sentiments like, “May the Lord cut off all flattering lips.” Underneath its prickly exterior, though, the Psalm is all about words and how we use them—lies, lips, tongue, boasts, promises—the Psalm is full of “word” words. The Psalm seems to anticipate our media-saturated age in which truth is captive to rhetoric, spin, and click-bait. How comforting, then, that in this Psalm God cuts through the chatter and promises to arise and defend the maligned and defenseless!

    The first song of my Pilgrim Psalms series is “Deliver Me,” based on Psalm 120. As Peterson points out, it’s a song of discontent–a discontent that urges us to leave the warring and lies of our native land to set off for the city of God. It is the Pilgrim Psalm that sets us on our pilgrimage.
