Psalms and Worship

Tips For Use of Home / Family Worship Edition Songs


These settings of the psalms are designed to help you make use of the following features:

  • Congregational singing (text / music)
  • Basic audio files (to help learn the songs by ear)
  • Simplified piano parts 
  • Guitar chords
  • Lower keys

Shorter Ranges of Singing

Sometimes a song is harder to sing because it has a wide range of melody. We have tried to find tunes that will be easier to sing because they have a narrower range. These are also in lower keys. Sometimes keys were chosen in order to make it easier for guitar.

Many of the songs included are from our church hymnal supplement, Praise Glorious, but a few others are chosen especially because they might be good for private use and with children. All of the songs are either in the public domain or have been authorized for this use within our church. You may freely print these for personal use, but not for commercial use.

Easy Piano Parts

  1. Designed so that even beginning pianists may participate.
  2. Asking a piano teacher to include these in children's assignments may be a help.

A Note on the Guitar Chords

  1. Designed so that even beginning guitarists may play along.
  2. Guitar chords may not match the piano chords exactly. If a pianist is also playing along, in most cases it will be fine, but a chord or two may be different to be simple for guitar.
  3. Some guitar chords might not sound right to someone who is accustomed to hymnal chords; however, they should work for accompanying home singing.

Home / Family Worship Ideas

  1. Do not feel that you must sing every stanza. Fit the needs of your home. God may minister to you from one stanza just as He ministers at times from one verse of a psalm.
  2. Reading verses that go with the song is helpful.
  3. Discussing the meaning of the lyrics will enrich your singing. Do not assume that your family understands the meaning.
