Psalms

a) PSALM 104

The following metrical paraphrase of Psalm 104:1-9,24,35c by David Schütz could be used on this day. It is sung to the tune Wondrous love (LHS 794, ATA 145). If reproducing this version, please put ‘Words (c) David Schütz’ at the beginning or the end of the psalm.

O bless the Lord, my soul; O Lord God, you are great;
in majesty and light you are robed.
The heavens form your house, with pillars in the sea;
the clouds your chariot on the wings of the wind,
and fire, flame and wind serve your will.

And so you also founded the earth to stand firm,
though deeply it was covered in flood.
At your rebuke the flood fled back to valleys deep,
and at your thunderous voice it returned to the sea,
where you assigned the waters their place.

You set a boundary there that sea may not pass;
the earth will not be flooded again.
How many are your works, in wisdom they were made!
Your creatures fill the earth, and your blessings abound.
O bless the Lord, my soul! Praise the Lord!

b) PSALM 91

Michael Joncas’ paraphrase of Psalm 91 ‘On eagle’s wings’ in ATO 411, TIS 48 could also be considered for today.

John Bell’s paraphrase of Psalm 91 ‘Whoever lives beside the Lord’ may be found on page 42 of Psalms of Patience, Protest and Praise (c) 1993 Wild Goose Publications (and is also in TIS, 49).
