Here's one from the vault...

"Rise Up, O LORD (Psalm 10)" was among the first psalms we ever wrote. We were using it in worship before My Soul Among Lions was a thing. It's still one of our favorites, too.

When we launched MSAL and were putting together songs for our first album, we didn't think we could do better than what we had in "Rise Up, O Lord." Only problem was, stylistically it didn't fit well with the other material on the record. It was an arena rock anthem, not a folk song. So to make it work we had to radically reinvent it.

We like what came of the Volume 1 arrangement. But we don't mind admitting that it never lived up to the original Good Shepherd Band treatment (GSB was the name of our church band in those days). Which is why we're pleased now to find an excuse to finish up an old recording of "Rise Up, O LORD" and to make it available to MSAL Super Fans as originally conceived.

Performed by:
Jody Killingsworth—vocals, acoustic
Philip Moyer—electric guitar, organ, vocals
David Pryor—electric guitar
Andrew Henry—bass

My Soul Among Lions // Rise Up, O Lord (Psalm 10) [Alternate Version]
My Soul Among Lions is versifying the Book of Psalms for singing. Help them complete the project by supporting their work: Rise U...
It started when we were young...
It started when we were young, learning to sing in church and to play piano and violin and drums. But it really started several years ago when God brought us together from across the country to a church in the crossroads of America. We started as church musicians, doing our best to figure out how to help God’s people in worship, week in and week out. We joined the hymn revitalization movement and we wrote some new songs of our own. And then we discovered the tradition of psalm singing. The more we read and the more we worked, the more convinced we became that our church, and churches across the country, should be singing the psalms. So what was stopping them?

The answer was easy—nobody had done the work of putting the Psalms to modern music. Sure, some people had done some Psalms and done them well. But nobody had tackled the whole book. It was a big job—big enough to take a lifetime. But somebody had to start somewhere, and, like the Good Book says, with God all things are possible.

The other big question was what kind of music and forms to set God’s work to. It had to be complex and beautiful enough to capture the nuance of the text, and simple enough for grandpa and grandma and all the kiddos to sing along. We didn’t have to answer that question ourselves. Generations of gospel singers on the southern plains and Appalachian mountain men and street corner balladeers had answered it already. American folk music has evolved over the past two hundred years to express the simplest declarations of love, and the thorniest statements of political protest. It’s the music of children and the music of poets and philosophers. It’s the perfect music to capture the brightest bursts of color and the smallest shades of God’s truth.

So we decided to form a proper band. We tuned our guitars, sharpened our pencils, and went to work. We tried the songs out on each other, on church congregations, and house parties, and anybody else who would listen. God blessed us and gave us some good tunes, and we hope and pray He will bless us still. Because the work is just beginning.
