Love the words to this one and a big thanks to my wonderful wife Elaine for helping me with the vocals.  BTW, if you haven't read her blog for the HT Children's Liturgy of the Word you should.  Great stuff!  You can find it at  So here's this weeks demo and the lead sheet in the original key as well as the more congregation friendly key.




Psalm 96: Proclaim His Marvelous Deeds to All the Nations - for 01/17/10

Sorry for the delay.  Had some Internet issues this week.  In any case, here's the demo and the lead sheet in the original key of A and the lower, more congregation freindly key of D.

Psalm 29: The Lord Will Bless His People With Peace

OK.  There seems to be some uncertainty regarding the prescibed Psalm for this week.  OCP has it listed as Psalm 104: O Bless the Lord, my soul.  The USCCB however has Psalm 29: The Lord will bless his people with peace as the response.  I'm going with the Bishops (especially since I didn't notice the discrepancy until after I had written the setting).  So here's the demo and the lead sheet in both the original (and unsingable to evryone but me) key of D and the more congregation friendly (and therefore terrible for me) key of A.
