Psalmistry Music has been providing original lyrics, free sheet music (including guitar chords), MP3, Midi and NWC files for study, worship and praise since 2000. It encompasses all of the Psalms and related devotional music.
In composing the Psalms I attempted to summarize the original wording and concept of a Psalm, rather than using a phrase or thought as a take-off for further exposition. Consistent with the purpose of teaching and worship, my further goal was to create simple melodies which stick in the mind like oatmeal and thereby assist recollection of the associated Word. The music was composed on a guitar, but the simple melodies and chords in the sheet music should be readily adaptable for playing on the piano, organ and other musical instruments. Click the about link for additional information about the music, background and purpose. Additional information on the file types and uses is included in the help file.
To search for music, type in a Psalm number (e.g. 23, not "Psalm 23"), word or phrase in the Search box, or—better—use the Music link in the drop-down menu. Touch screen and Mobile users may need to double tap on the desired Psalm from the drop down menu.
Enjoy the Music of the Psalms! Send a link to a friend if the music is useful.
1. The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
To lie in green pastures I go.
He leads me beside the still waters.
He guides me, restoreth my soul.
Though I walk in the vale of death's shadow,
I fear not, with You at my side.
Thy rod and Thy staff, they do comfort me.
Through the veil of death, God is my guide.
2. God prepareth a table before me
in the presence of my deadly foe.
He annointeth my head with fine oil.
My cup, with His love, overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life on this earth.
I will dwell in my Lord's house forevermore:
Death's passage is but my new birth.
