BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND #Singing #Improvising From The #Bible!

Hey guys!, people are loving this SoundCloud so I thought I would reblog!

Enjoy x

Hey Guys!,

I’ve been doing instrumental covers lately (click here to see what I’m talking about) but I wanted to show you some of the other stuff that I’ve been doing!

Here’s me singing from the bible (click here to see or watch it in the embedded player below). It’s a worship technique, where you pick up a bible and sing the text instead of reading it, most of the time the melody is improvised and it works very well with the Psalms. Here’s me demonstrating it!

Click here to watch my improvisations on YouTube or watch them in the embedded playlist below
Click here for the texts: Psalm 91 text, Psalm 23 text.

 

If you prefer to just listen here’s the SoundCloud playlist:

VIDEO 1 TEXT:

Psalm 91:1-16 NIV “[1] Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. [2] I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” [3] Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. [4] He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. [5] You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, [6] nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. [7] A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. [8] You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. [9] If you say, “The LORD is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, [10] no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. [11] For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; [12] they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. [13] You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent. [14] “Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. [15] He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. [16] With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.”

 

VIDEO 2 TEXT:

[Psalm 23:1-6 NLT] [1] A psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I have all that I need. [2] He lets me rest in green meadows; he leads me beside peaceful streams. [3] He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name. [4] Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me. [5] You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. You honor me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings. [6] Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the LORD forever.

 

Hopefully this video has inspired you to try it yourself at church or at home? 🙂

Lots of Love
