Psalms in Worship

Yesterday, the Acoustic Gurus presented a song I wrote using Psalm 1 for lyrics.

If you have a songbook with 150 different lyrics that you claim is inspired by God, why do you sing songs by less inspired authors?

Like it or hate it, I think our primary source material for music should be the Scriptures. Most people who know me also know that I have little tolerance for “prom songs for Jesus” – songs written to Jesus but sound like you’re channeling a teenage girl – and 7/11 songs – seven lyrics repeated eleven or more times.

So, rather than just complain about the sorry state of worship music, we have set about writing new tunes for the most ancient worship songs we possess. The video above is the first of several we are working on.
