Introduction to this collection of Psalms

When seeking comfort, strength and inspiration,
for thousands of years we've turned to the Book of Psalms.

Ancient words, melodic,
powerfully capturing yearnings, hopes, despairs, wrestlings of soul.

These excerpts, with poetic liberties, merge old voices with the spirit of a modern,
to aid them reach, touch, be a more accessible source of succor.

For our ancestors, who lived close to the earth, allowed their raw voice of spirit to sing.
Thus, the psalms eternal nature.

Drink, and may they continue to nourish.
