Psalm 146: Praise the Lord My Soul for Sunday, September 26, 2010

So when I first wrote a setting for Psalm 146 it was with the refrain "Blessed are the poor in spirit, the kingdom of heaven is theirs".  Some time later, the same Psalm came up but this time with "Praise the Lord my soul" as the refrain.  I found that the guitar line I had come up with fit the text perfectly (even if it is a bit high for me to sing) and so there are now 2 settings of this Psalm that I have let loose on the world.  Someday I plan to combine the two refrains :-).  Here's the lead sheet for this weeks version.

This is where I post Psalm settings for use by Petrus and Rock of Faith. Of course anyone else who wants to use them is also welcome.
