Some of you may know that Laura is a composer, and fewer of you know that I like writing songs here and there. =)

One thing we’ve found to be a particularly rewarding weekend activity: writing singable worship songs based on the Psalms. I’ll share more on this soon, but in the meantime . . .

 Lyrics to Psalm 1: You Lift My Head

How blessed is the man who does not give in
To counsels of wicked nor pathways of sin
Who takes no part in scoffers’ plan
How blessed is the man; how blessed is the man.

But in the law of the Lord is his delight
And in the law he meditates day and night

And like a tree by mountain stream
Whose fruit abounds from beam to beam
The Lord excels the work of his hand
How blessed is the man; how blessed is the man.

Oh, the wicked way will perish in the night
But the Lord knows the way of those who do what is right.
