Tune Information
Name: RESTING PLACE
Composer: Henry Vander Werp, 1846-1918 (1911)
Meter: 8.6.8.6 D
Key: D Major
Notes: These two stanzas are drawn primarily from the opening and closing verses of the psalm. As such, they form a suitable frame for the reading of the psalm. The tune RESTING PLACE is associated with the hymn “I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say,” a text that resonates well with the psalm. If the hymn is familiar to the congregation, consider having a soloist or choir sing the psalm stanzas to whatever tune the congregation associates with the hymn, with some or all of the psalm read between the stanzas. This can be followed by the reading of some words of Jesus, such as Matt. 11:28-30. The congregation can then respond by singing the assuring words of the hymn “I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say.”
