Psalm 118: The Lord’s Become Our Salvation


My friend Wendell Kimbrough and I co-wrote a setting of Psalm 118 for the 2020 Calvin Worship Symposium and it now appears on his 2023 release You Belong.

1. Out of my distress I called out for help,
and the Lord came quickly to save me.
Praise our God most high.
He is on my side.
For the Lord’s become my salvation!

Oh, give thanks to the Lord
for his never-ending love.
We will celebrate what he’s done this day,
for the Lord’s become our salvation!
For the Lord’s become our salvation!

2. Open up the gate where the righteous wait
to behold the face of their Savior.
I am welcomed in
by my Lord and friend,
for the Lord’s become my salvation.

3. Now the stone ignored by the strong and proud
has become the Church’s foundation.
Let the weak give praise
for this gift of grace,
for the Lord’s become our salvation.
