about

For centuries the book of Psalms has informed, directed, and inspired the worship of God’s people. Without minimizing the struggles of living in a fallen world, this book exudes a confident trust in the God who is good and rules over all.

These twelve songs have emerged from those ancient poems and prayers. Our aim is to offer fresh interpretations of individual psalms, especially in light of the crucified and risen Savior to whom they point.

You have been our dwelling place
A rock amidst the waves
Though everything around us shakes
Your truth will still remain
Our anchor forever

From everlasting You are God
Your love forever will endure forever
Your promises are sure
To everlasting You are God

A thought that soon is gone
With all our strength we cling to You
Our rock, steadfast and true
Our refuge forever

You were and will always be

And crumble to the sea
The oceans roar because the Lord
Is reigning sovereignly
And those who trust in You

The Lord our fortress, our rock and our defense
God is our refuge, our help in time of need
He will always be our peace

All around us we hear the sounds
Of violence in the earth
The nations rage against Your name
Against Your mighty Word
And one day wars will cease
And endless peace will reign
One day all the earth will be made new

BRIDGE
If You are for us, who can be against us
If You are for us, we’ll never be ashamed
If You are for us, who can be against us
If You are for us, we’ll never be ashamed

God shall arise, Oh sing His praise
Lift up your eyes and see your Savior

And You obeyed Your Father, and in You was no sin
But You were counted guilty and died our death

Let every kingdom sing praise
Let all the nations say You are awesome
Let every kingdom sing praise

Out of the depths, O Lord, I cry to You
When I am tempted to despair
Though I might fail to trust Your promises

But I see mercy in Your hands

CHORUS

I will wait for You, my God
When my fears come with no warning
In Your Word I’ll put my trust
When the harvest time is over and I still see no fruit
I will wait, I will wait for You

VERSE 2
The secret mysteries belong to You
We only know what You reveal
And all my questions that are unresolved
Don’t change the wisdom of Your will
In every trial and loss
My hope is in the cross
Where Your compassions never fail

His glory is my gladness
In Him I’m satisfied
