Any budding musicians or lyricists out there? We need your talents!
The Book of Psalms is the songbook of the Bible – David (yes the shepherd and great king) wrote many, if not all, of the Psalms, and you’ll find many emotions within the Psalms just as you will in any pop song today – love, betrayal, justice, praise, peace, contentment.
For those of a certain age, did you know that the Boney M song “By the Rivers of Babylon” is a direct lift of Psalm 137? See – the psalms are still well known today!
Come along on Sunday 28th December and learn more about the songbook of the Bible. We’re making all kinds of instruments to use during our worship and writing song lyrics which we’ll put to a simple tune and which we’ll sing during our worship time. We might find a budding “X Factor” contestant in amongst you all!
