– Since the response is sung twice already, no need to repeat the response twice at start and end.
– You could choose to sing only one half of the response in between the verses. In that case, use only the second half of the response. (Gm – F – Gmsus4 – Gm)
Story Behind the Song:
This one was written well in advance of Lent. However I came across several roadblocks to recording the video and notating the music piece: (1) lack of sunlight (it’s been cloudy and raining in California) and (2) super busy schedules at work. Forgive the lateness of this! The next 2 psalms will be early, I promise.
Feel free to use this music for all non-commercial purposes. I ask for no payments or donations. I do however ask that you please pray for an intention for each song you use. For this psalm, please pray for: victims of all the recent natural disasters around the world. May they find strength and hope in Jesus amidst all their troubles.
If this music is a blessing to you, feel free to spread the word. Join me on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/MassMusicByLionel) so you get the latest music pieces and videos — much earlier than on this blog. Why is this so? It’s much easier to immediately post a link to an uploaded music piece or video via Facebook than it is to sit down and write a complete blog entry!
God bless your music ministries. May you be used to spread the love and joy of Jesus our Lord through the music He’s blessed you with.
