Singing the Bible's Song of the Ascension


Tomorrow is the Sunday after Ascension Day, and as Ascension Day (the greatest Thursday in the year!) isn't a holiday in the UK and most of us don't have Ascension Day services on a Thursday (alas), the Sunday after Ascension Day is a good time to dwell upon the glory of our Ascended Saviour.

So, here are two completely different takes on singing the Bible's own song of the Ascension - Psalm 24.

First up, here's Sons of Korah's version of Psalm 24 with words taken straight from the Bible (NIV I think) and in contemporary worship style.

And secondly, here's the more traditional Scottish Metrical Psalter version of Psalm 24:7-10, sung acapella. This is the old translation of the words, but the new translation in Sing Psalms fits to the same tune in modern language.

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. (Col. 3:16)
