The Book of Psalms in the Bible is a collection of 150 songs. The collection includes some of the same songs that David sang as a shepherd. When David sang, it glorified the name of God. When David sang, it calmed the troubled spirit of a king. When David sang, he reveled in the richness and bounty of God. When David sang, he saw himself for what he was--a man wonderfully blessed by God, and at the same time desperately in need of mercy and forgiveness.
The same messages are as relevant today as they were hundreds and thousands of years ago. We still need to express themes of praise and themes of peace. Themes of blessing and themes of woe. Themes that Christ himself remembered and cried out from the cross.
This is my psalter; my own expression. It is my shout of praise; my cry for mercy. The scripture texts are from the King James Version of the Bible. Isaac Watts' Psalter is here, too. Over time, I hope to prepare and add to this collection metrical adaptations of some of the Psalms. The tunes are from a collection compiled in 1851 by Henry E. Dibdin.
Any comments and suggestions will be gratefully received. I would consider it a blessing to hear how you use this psalter.
God bless you--
