More About This Title Singing God's Psalms


Drawing on his decades of experience as a pastor, hymn writer, and hymnal consultant, Fred Anderson here offers pastors and worship leaders a rich treasury of singable psalms — one for each psalm text or canticle appointed in the three-year Revised Common Lectionary.
Anderson renders each psalm into metered text, using contemporary, biblical, inclusive language, and suggests appropriate pairings with familiar hymn tunes. Short pastoral reflections on each psalm text provide background on what is being sung — and are also useful for sermon preparation and personal meditation.


Fred R. Anderson is pastor emeritus of Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church in New York City and a recognized hymn writer whose hymns and metrical psalm texts appear in a number of Protestant and Catholic hymnals around the world.
