Greg Tappert Not sure it is possible to pick a favorite; each track is my favorite while I am listening to it. Love the traditional settings for these Psalms. Vocals are beautiful, and the balance of vocals and instrumentals is perfect! Favorite track: Immortal Honours.

Psalm 145 03:46
v1 God my king, I will extol you Bless your name forevermore Every day, I’ll sing your goodness Hymn the greatness of the Lord You are praised through generations of your works we’ll always tell We will praise your matchless goodness Praise the God of Israel v2 God is merciful and gracious Slow to anger, rich in love He is good to all his creatures Showers blessings from above All your works shall bless and thank you Tell of all your mighty deeds Celebrate your wondrous kingdom You shall reign in majesty v3 Lord your throne will last forever You will reign from age to age You are faithful to your promise You are kind in all your ways You uphold the weak and falling Give your strength to weary feet From you hand you pour forth blessing, Satisfy our every need v4 God is righteous to his promise He is kind in all his ways He is near to those who seek him Yet the wicked casts away He fulfils the good desire Of his saints who fear his name Let all people’s praise his goodness And forever sing his praise
1. Immortal honours rest on Jesus’ head; My God, my portion, and my living bread; In Him I live, upon Him cast my care; He saves from death, destruction, and despair. 2. He came in love to suffer for his own Died in disgrace to lift me to his throne My only hope, in whom I find my rest: Jesus, my strength and glorious righteousness 3. My every need He richly will supply Nor will His mercy ever let me die; In Him there dwells a treasure all divine, And matchless grace has made that treasure mine.. 4. O that my soul could love and praise Him more, His beauties trace, His majesty adore; Live near His heart, find rest in his embrace Gladly obey my king through endless days Revised lyrics by Matt Searles and Tim Chester
Psalm 40 05:06
1. I waited, waited for the Lord He turned and heard my cry He drew me up from death’s dark pit And set me safe on high He put a new song in my mouth A song of praise to God That those around may see and fear And come to trust the Lord 2. How blessed the one who trusts the LORD And turns from other gods For you O LORD have done great things And there is none like you The wonders you have done for us Are far beyond compare I will proclaim with all my heart Your boundless, matchless grace 3. In sacrifice and offering You do not take delight Yet you have opened up my ears That I may do what’s right I said “O Lord, here I have come As written in the scroll My heart delights to do your will, Your word is in my soul.” 4 I’ll praise your grace and righteousness And glory in your love My heart will sing and shout for joy I’ll tell of all you’ve done Your mercy and your faithfulness Endure for endless days My sins have overtaken me I rest upon your grace 5. O Lord be pleased to save my soul Come quickly to my aid May those who seek to take my life Be turned aside in shame But may all those who seek your face Proclaim “Our God is great” Though I am weak, my Lord is strong My God do not delay
Psalm 103 04:13
1. Bless the Lord, my inmost being Lift up high his holy name Bless the Lord, all that’s within me Ponder all his deeds of grace He forgives our great transgression Heals and lifts us from the grave Crowns our life with love and mercy Satisfies us all our days 2. He brings justice for the needy Makes them rise on eagle’s wings He made known his ways to Moses Shows to Israel his deeds He is merciful and gracious Slow to anger, rich in love He will turn aside his anger Shower blessings from above 3. For as high as highest heaven Is the Lord’s unending love Far as East is from the West, he Has removed our sins from us Like a Father to his children He is merciful to us Shows compassion in our weakness He remembers we are dust 4. As for man, we bloom and flourish Like a flower of the grass Then we wither, then we perish All our days so quickly pass But God’s love for those who fear him Will endure from age to age For our children and their children Those who walk in all his ways 5. He has set his throne in heaven All his purpose to fulfil Bless the Lord, O you his angels You who do his sovereign will Bless the Lord all you his servants You who tremble at his word Bless the Lord, all of creation O my soul now bless the Lord
Psalm 65 03:02
1. Praise awaits you God in Zion Soon to you all men will come Though our sins prevail against us You atone for every one Blessed are those you choose and welcome Dwelling in your courts of grace We are filled with every blessing Satisfied in you always 2. Holy God and mighty saviour Hope of all the farthest seas When we pray you hear and answer You make known your wondrous deeds By your strength you formed the mountains Stilled the roaring of the waves Earth rejoices at your goodness Dawn and evening sing your praise 3. From your river ever-flowing You give life to all the land Autumn rains and grain at harvest You provide for every man All the year is crowned with bounty Deserts bloom and hills bear fruit Hills and valleys, all creation Lift their hymn of praise to you
May the Lord bless you May the Lord Keep you Make he make his face to shine on you (repeat) May he give you peace May he give you peace May he give you the blessing of peace
