Psalms

PSALM 9

Music Resources Vol. 3- Psalm settings : Psalm 9 p13 , Psalm 9 p14

PSALM 133

The following paraphrase of Psalm 133 by David Schütz is sung to the tune ‘A New Commandment’. Use the music in ATN 65; the tune at LHS 853 is slightly different. It is also at TIS 699. (Note: the word ‘oil’ is pronounced with one syllable here.) If reproducing this version, please put ‘Words (c) David Schütz’ at the beginning or the end of the psalm.

How good and pleasant it is when we live
just like brothers and sisters, together as one,
just like brothers and sisters, together as one.
It’s like precious oil poured out on the head of Aaron,
and down his beard onto his vestments.
It’s like dew of Hermon descending on Mount Zion,
where God gives life to those he blesses.
