Psalm 22

This song was written from the last third of Psalm 22 in the Trinity Psalter. Psalm 22 is one of the clearest psalm prophecies of the crucifixion and resurrection. It begins with, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” and continues to foretell the mocking, insults and the dividing of Jesus clothes. However, at verse 22 the psalm hinges with, “I will declare your name to my brothers; in the congregation I will praise you.”  From there the psalm exalts the resurrected Lord and King.

This was recorded live during our worship service a few of weeks ago.

Psalm 22 (listen) (chord chart) (lead sheet)

All ye that fear Jehovah’s Name, His glory tell, His praise proclaim;
Ye children of His chosen race, Stand ye in awe before His face.
The suffering One He has not spurned Who unto Him for succor turned;
From him He has not hid His face But answered his request in grace.

O Lord, Thy goodness makes me raise
Amid Thy people songs of praise;
Before all them that fear Thee,
Now I worship Thee and pay my vow.

For all the meek Thou wilt provide, They shall be fed and satisfied;
All they that seek the Lord shall live And never ending praises give.
The Lord’s unfailing righteousness, All generations shall confess.
From age to age shall me be taught, What wondrous works the Lord hath wrought

O Lord, Thy goodness makes me raise
Amid Thy people songs of praise;
Before all them that fear Thee,
Now I worship Thee and pay my vow.

All ye that fear Jehovah’s Name, His glory tell, His praise proclaim;
Ye children of His chosen race, Stand ye in awe before His face.
The suffering One He has not spurned Who unto Him for succor turned;
From him He has not hid His face But answered his request in grace.

O Lord, Thy goodness makes me raise
Amid Thy people songs of praise;
Before all them that fear Thee,
Now I worship Thee and pay my vow.

  1. A VERY special one at our house. Enjoyed at our wedding, and interestingly we sang it each Sunday that I found out I was pregnant and the Sunday nearest Speck’s due date. 🙂

  2. I really hear a choir behind this song. The parts I can hear from the choir sound amazing.It’s a victorious feeling song, I hear clouds seperating, chains falling off. If it were possible to hear a vision.

  3. ahh.. i love this song. it’s hard to come up with descriptions for the feelings that different music evokes.. but i think you could use superheros/movie heros to parallel pretty well.
    a superman is big, with feelings of flying and breaking through clouds.
    a spider-man is contantly bouncing off things, changing directions, always rising, falling, catching, landing, with moments of weightlessness.
    a Neo is exacting, micro-rhythmic, small quick changes, unpredictable, almost frustrating full of half-builds and half-releases, the music that hand-to-hand combat would make.
    a jason bourne is effortless and even, easy going, or just all out.

    this song is a spider-man.
