Responsorial psalm for the 11th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Cycle B.
Taken from Psalm 92, this is a song of thanksgiving for all the blessings of the Lord, and how the just man will live long and flourish like a cedar of Lebanon.

Usage Notes:
Sing response twice at start and twice at the end.
Be careful not to go too fast.

Story Behind the Song:
I composed this psalm taking inspiration from several Gregorian Chants. In an effort to compose more closely to chant structure, I’ve been absorbing recordings of psalms and readings on chant structure, and this is one step towards that direction, though still with a very structured 3/4 tempo.

Prayer Intention:
If you use this psalm, please pray for one of Pope Benedict XVI’s prayer intentions for June 2012: that believers may recognize in the Eucharist the living presence of Jesus, the Risen One, who accompanies them in daily life.
