Psalm-Hymns: Books 1, 2 & 3 By L. L. Larkins

I have wanted to find a book like this for years. I would have liked the exact KJV scriptures set to music, but I am very pleased with this! The songs are based on Psalms 1 through 89. There were no parts of scriptures in these as I expected, but each one conveys the idea of that Psalm. Each one is set to a recognizable hymn. I was happily surprised that the songs were very easy to sing to the suggested tunes.
At the end of most of the pieces are notes (I prefer to look at them as mini devotionals) discussing the particular scripture. Included are numerous scripture references to read. Lots of scripture is a big plus for me in any book.I felt this made it more than just a song to sing.
I understand this can be used in with a group, but my desire was for my personal time with God. The Word says the Lord loves for us to sing praises to Him. This is something I have wanted to incorporate in my daily personal worship. I feel it draws me closer to Him and prepares my heart and mind for the day. A church hymnal is of course a great source but Psalm Hymns adds even more choices. I love the concept of reading that particular Psalm and singing a song specifically for it.
For in whatever way you choose to use this book, it is a true treasure!
