The original Psalms are a collection of songs written thousands of years ago. They basically form the hymnbook of ancient Israel. The original collection of Psalms included 150 songs which were composed at various stages throughout Israel's history. The collection was completed by 200 BC or earlier. It features both celebration songs and laments.
As a group of songs, the Psalms are quite different from contemporary Christian worship songs. Most Psalms don't fit easily into contemporary song structure formats (verse, chorus, verse). Yet the Psalms are Biblically deep in a way that is subversive of pop culture. The Psalms also feature many lament songs which radically depart from the "making people happy" motive that is at work in most congregations.


Featuring 10 new songs by Joel Anderson and friends. In this album are contemporary folk rock versions of the Hebrew Psalms. Songs of celebration and songs of lament.
