Usage Notes:
Sing response twice at start and twice at end.
Play the song slowly.

Story Behind the Song:
Since the theme of the psalm is one of yearning and pleading for mercy, it was composed in a minor key and was written in a way that resembles (but really isn’t) a Gregorian chant.

Final Word:
Sorry for the delay. The music for this was written back in Dec. 20-23 but was posted only now due to too much holiday relaxation. Note the recording was done at sunset on December 23. Merry Christmas and a happy new year to all! God bless.
