Psalm 125: Everlasting Peace
This Pilgrim Psalm setting of Psalm 125 has the voice at the center. Indeed, there are no instruments at all on this recording. Of course, you should feel free to try it with a praise band or a simple keyboard accompaniment.
Just in case you don’t pick up on my musical word-painting, Psalm 125 talks about God surrounding his people like Mount Zion circles Jerusalem; what better way to represent that image than with a round?

Those who trust in the Lord are encircled, secure,
surrounded like Zion, whose mountains endure.
Forever protected from evil’s misdeeds.
Forever they rest in God’s everlasting peace.
