Tune Information
Composer: William B. Bradbury, 1816-1868
Key: F Major
Notes: The tune ANDRE suggests a child-like telling of the story. Consider performing sts. 2 and 3 in canon to suggest the rolling of the waters and the skipping of the rams and lambs. The tune O HEILAND REISS (114B) interprets the psalm in a more awe-filled way. O Heiland, reiss die Himmel auf is an Advent chorale describing the rending of the heavens and the trembling of the earth at the coming of the Lord, an apt association for this psalm. (See 144A.)
