Favorite Modern Psalms


David T

Recommended Posts

Here are two songs I consider to be, in their own way, on par with the power and inspiration of some of the raw emotional and worshipful material found in the biblical Psalms. They are both very different in how they're presented, and both are expressed by individuals who would have strong disagreements on certain elements of their faith, but both give me the chills each time I hear them, and draw my mind to my love and reliance on the Lord:

You're all that I have and you're all that I need

Each and every day I pray to get to know your peace

I want to be close to you, yes I'm so hungry

You're like water for my soul when it gets thirsty

Without you there's no me

You're the air that I breathe

Sometimes the world is dark and I just can't see

With these, demons surround all around to bring me down to negativity

But I believe, yes I believe, I said I believe

I'll stand on my own two feet

Won't be brought down on one knee

Fight with all of my might and get these demons to flee

Hashem's rays fire blaze burn bright and I believe

Hashem's rays fire blaze burn bright and I believe

Out of darkness comes light, twilight unto the heights

Crown Heights burnin' up all through till twilight

Said thank you to my God, now I finally got it right

And I'll fight with all of my heart, and all a' my soul, and all a' my might

[Chorus:]

What's this feeling?

My love will rip a hole in the ceiling

I give myself to you from the essence of my being and I

Sing to my God, songs of love and healing

I want Moshiach now, time we start revealing

What's this feeling?

My love will rip a hole in the ceiling

I give myself to you from the essence of my being and I

Sing to my God, songs of love and healing

I want Moshiach now

Strippin' away the layers and reveal your soul

Got to give yourself up and then you become whole

You're a slave to yourself and you don't even know

You want to live the fast life but your brain moves slow

If you're trying to stay high, bound to stay low

You want God but you can't deflate your ego

If you're already there then there's nowhere to go

If you're cup's already full then its bound to overflow

If you're drowning in the water's and you can't stay afloat

Ask Hashem for mercy, and he'll throw you a rope

You're looking for help from God you say he couldn't be found

Searching up to the sky and looking beneath the ground

Like a King without his Crown

You keep fallin' down

You really want to live but can't get rid of your frown

Tried to reach unto the heights and wound bound down on the ground

Given up your pride and then you heard a sound

Out of night comes day and out of day comes light

Nullified to the One like sunlight in a ray,

Makin' room for his love and a fire gone blaze

Makin' room for his love and a fire gone blaze

[Chorus:]

What's this feeling?

My love will rip a hole in the ceiling

I give myself to you from the essence of my being and I

Sing to my God, songs of love and healing

I want Moshiach now, time we start revealing

What's this feeling?

My love will rip a skylight in the ceiling

I give myself to you from the essence of my being and I

Sing to my God, songs of love and healing

See I lift up my eyes where my help come from

And I seen it circling around from the mountain

Thunder!

You feel it in your chest

You keep my mind at ease and my soul at rest

You're not vexed

Look to the sky where my help come from

Seen it circling around from the mountain

Thunder!

You feel it in your chest

You keep my mind at ease and my soul at rest

You're not vexed

Well, sometimes my life

Just don't make sense at all

When the mountains look so big

And my faith just seems so small

CHORUS:

So hold me Jesus, 'cause I'm shaking like a leaf

You have been King of my glory

Won't You be my Prince of Peace

And I wake up in the night and feel the dark

It's so hot inside my soul

I swear there must be blisters on my heart

CHORUS

Surrender don't come natural to me

I'd rather fight You for something

I don't really want

Than to take what You give that I need

And I've beat my head against so many walls

Now I'm falling down, I'm falling on my knees

And this Salvation Army band

Is playing this hymn

And Your grace rings out so deep

It makes my resistance seem so thin

CHORUS

You have been King of my glory

Won't You be my Prince of Peace

Beautiful!- thanks! They have so much in common.

Eph. 4: 13

13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

Mosiah 18: 21

21 And he commanded them that there should be no contention one with another, but that they should look forward with one eye, having one faith and one baptism, having their hearts knit together in unity and in love one towards another.

I want Moshiach now

Amen to that, my brother!
