But they are songs!What about a song that you've written that was inspired by one of the Psalms? I posted one on the lyric critiques that I'm working on that is based on Psalm 46:10.
This weeks song writing challenge is to bring a Psalm forward into our generation. Provide a Psalm's lyric with music to carry it to the ears that need to hear it today.
Perhaps some attempts of others will inspire you:
The Psalms Project
The Psalms Project is a community of musicians carrying out out a vision of setting all 150 Psalms to music and including the essential meaning of every verse, crafting songs that are stylistically faithful to each Psalm by combining modern, familiar instrumentation with unconventional structure and style – a marriage of King David’s vision with the best qualities of modern worship music.
Scripture Songs for Worship--Ester Mui
NKJV Psalms and songs set to contemporary music
Observed the Psalm looking for its internal structure (especially repetition)
Used several reliable versions and drew from them all as needed to develop a smooth musical text
Composed a tune around it
