    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.

    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.

    My friend Wendell Kimbrough and I co-wrote a setting of Psalm 118 for the 2020 Calvin Worship Symposium. It was recently featured on his Patreon and will likely appear on an upcoming album.

  • Psalm 12: I Will Now Arise

    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.

    Psalm 121 is a beautiful Psalm of protection that begins with the words, “I lift my eyes up to the hills.” In keeping with my Pilgrim Psalms project, this song is simple enough that it can be sung without musical notation, as it is written in a leader/echo format which makes it easy to learn: simply listen and sing back.

    Psalm 122 is full of exuberance at the mere thought of going to worship. For the Israelites, the song would have accompanied them on the long journey to Jerusalem. I can imagine this song would be one of their favorites along the way: it called them to join the journey, it boosted flagging spirits along the way, and it would be a grand anthem upon arriving at their destination.

    Like all my Pilgrim Psalms, “Let Us Go!” is very simple and easily learned without music. It is an eight-measure chorus repeated ad-lib with three verses that can be sung by a leader on top of the chorus. Think of it as Hillbilly Taizé.

    [audio mp3="https://gregscheer.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/psalm_123-have_mercy.mp3"][/audio]

    Psalm 123 is a prayer for mercy. The first half of the Psalm describes our eyes looking up to heaven–an acknowledgment of the true God–and the second half is asking God to look down and intervene against lesser authorities–those gods of this earth who abuse their power. It is a simple, but powerful Pilgrim Psalm.

    This song is mentioned in Greg’s podcast, “Psalm 123 and Mercy.
