Psalm 109

Psalm 109 is a lament, a prayer for deliverance from someone who is being unjustly persecuted, someone whose love is responded to with hatred. It is a psalm of David, and this is important because it’s not just anyone who is being persecuted. It’s God’s anointed king, God’s messiah. The psalm speaks very openly about the fate of those who reject God’s anointed king. This is one of the psalms that the apostles looked to in Acts 1 when they were processing what happened to Judas. Psalm 109 serves as a warning to those who would reject God’s anointed king, but also an encouragement to God’s people that although the Messiah must suffer he will be delivered and come into his glory as described in the very next psalm, Psalm 110. To sing this psalm we set lyrics by Christopher Idle (©Jubilate Hymns) to an original melody. We used verse 26 of the psalm as a refrain.

Psalm 95

Psalm 95 has been used throughout church history as a call to worship. Sometimes, especially in recent settings, the second half of the psalm is not used. However, the second half of Psalm 95 is the longest quote from a psalm in the New Testament (quoted in Hebrews 3). Moreover, the second half of the Psalm is still very much a call to worship, calling the worshipers away from hard-heartedness to worship the one who calls us to himself (Psalm 95:7). The call to worship is a joyful call (Psalm 95:1), but not a casual call (Psalm 95:11).
