Revenge of the Killer Bs: Psalm 107, Thanks Be to God

Update 2/11/22: Sheet music for this song is now available at gregscheer. com.

This setting of Psalm 107 came about when the Psalm came up in the lectionary on a Sunday that the Guitarchestra was playing. I couldn’t find a workable version of the Psalm, so I took David Diephouse’s metrical text which is found in the Psalter Hymnal and paired it with a tune I composed to be guitar friendly. For such utilitarian beginnings, it’s had a surprisingly good run. Currently it’s sitting pretty in Psalms for All Seasons, 107D. Take a listen to the recording that didn’t make the CD: MP3.
