Notes: This song, a setting of v. 3, may be used as a frame or as a refrain for the reading of the entire psalm. One possibility would be to sing the first half of the song before v. 1 after v. 4 and then to sing it in its entirety (with the “hallelujahs”) after v. 8. Keyboard or guitar should vamp softly under the reading.
