Overview

Imagine God’s book of poetry, the Psalms, written as poems

• that rhyme

• that have a variety of metrical patterns

• that remain true to meaning of Scripture

• that help us hear God’s voice in a new way


Jehovah, Thou searchest me deeply;

My nature dost Thou understand;

Whenever I sit, Thou ponderest it;

Whenever I rise, Thou dost realize

My thoughts and the deeds I have planned.

––Psalm 139


Jehovah’s mine, my Shepherd divine;

No want will He fail to surpass;

He makes me dine, be filled, and recline

In pastures of tender, young grass.

––Psalm 23


The panting hart seeks most and first

For water-brooks, to quench its thirst,

Lest it should die;

So pants my soul, O God, for Thee

Who art the God of life to me:

Let me draw nigh!

––Psalm 42


“I have been teaching the Psalms for more than thirty years, and yet, as I read through these poems, I found myself repeatedly stopping to reflect on things I had never considered before, and being blessed by that exercise.”

––Dr. David Howard, Professor of Old Testament, Bethel Seminary, St. Paul, MN
