The Psalmistry

Original Music for the 150 Psalms

Free Sheet Music, Lyrics, MP3, Midi, NWC Files for the 150 Psalms

Since 2000, Psalmistry Music has provided original and free sheet music (including guitar chords), lyrics, MP3, Midi and NWC files for study, worship and praise. This site encompasses all of the Psalms and related devotional music.

• In composing the Psalms, I attempted to summarize the original wording and concept of a Psalm, rather than using a phrase or thought as a take-off for further exposition.

• Consistent with the purpose of teaching and worship, I created simple melodies that would stick in the mind like oatmeal and thereby assist recollection of the associated Word.

• I desired a unified, simple and immediately available resource for all users, including music teams, pastors and congregations. Search, listen, print, play. All sheet music is in PDF format.

• Although the music was composed on a guitar, the melody lines and written chords should facilitate use of multiple instruments.

• Click the about link for additional information about the music, background and purpose. Additional information on file types and use is included in the help file.

To search for music, type in a Psalm number, word or phrase in the Search box, press Enter (or its equivalent depending on the device) or—better—use the Music link in the drop-down menu.

At this time, the music is free for non-commercial use. I do request that holders of CCLI licenses report their use. See Terms of Use.

Enjoy the Music of the Psalms! Send a link to a friend if the music is useful.

The Lord Is My Shepherd (PSALM 23)

1. The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
To lie in green pastures I go.
He leads me beside the still waters.
He guides me, restoreth my soul.

Though I walk in the vale of death's shadow,
I fear not, with You at my side.
Thy rod and Thy staff, they do comfort me.
Through the veil of death, God is my guide.

2. God prepareth a table before me
in the presence of my deadly foe.
He annointeth my head with fine oil.
My cup, with His love, overflows.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life on this earth.
I will dwell in my Lord's house forevermore:
Death's passage is but my new birth.
