I Will Sing unto the LORD

I will sing unto the LORD,
for he has triumphed gloriously,
the horse and rider thrown into the sea.
I will sing unto the LORD,
for he has triumphed gloriously,
the horse and rider thrown into the sea.
The LORD, my God, my strength and song,
has now become my victory.
The LORD, my God, my strength and song,
has now become my victory.
The LORD is God, and I will praise him,
our covenant God, and I will exalt him.
The LORD is God, and I will praise him,
our covenant God, and I will exalt him.

Notes

TZENA is a lively Israeli folk melody consisting of three phrases, each one repeated before the next begins. The tune title is a Hebrew verb meaning "to go forth." After singing the melody through once, proceed in four-part canon on a half-note pulse (but slower in large congregations). The keyboard accompaniment suggests organ trio style, but the ideal accompaniment consists of guitar, piano, violin, tambourine, and hand clapping. For starters, try a hand clap at the points of the two eighth rests in the last section: “The LORD is God, and (clap) I will praise him.” Emily R. Brink (PHH 158) harmonized the tune in 1986 for the Psalter Hymnal.
