Psalms for Singing - Volume I
Based on the Book of Psalms these songs are perfect for Sunday music for solo singers, small groups or choirs. If you would like the guitar chords and words for any of the songs please email email@example.com.
These songs were inspired by Nan C. Merrill’s translation of the Psalms in her book Psalms for Praying: An Invitation to Wholeness. The lyrics for the songs are adapted from her book. The power of her words reaches gently and directly into the heart and opens a door to a new and healing experience of the spirit of the Psalms. Put to music by Gordon Burnham, these songs give expression to the essence of the words.

Music can provide direct access to emotional and spiritual experiences we rarely touch upon in our daily lives, but so deeply need for our soul’s fulfillment and our healing as a whole being. This music was born of a desire to feel and express the yearning in all of us to be whole, and the joy of being moved into that realm through music!
Each of these songs has a strong theme and emotional depth that will make your heart sing and your soul dance! “Soul Dance” is a vivid tapestry of sound and emotion, a song from the depths of the human spirit, an echo from the depths of the human heart.
