The words in this one are a bit wacky at times, but I've tried to make the best of it!

Sometimes I've found songs based on Psalms that just cut out the parts that don't "fit with our theology" or that are uncomfortable for us to hear, nevermind sing! Even the various lectionaries I come across will often politely omit parts of a chapter that don't align well.

But that seems wrong to me, somehow.

In any case, what can we take from this? We can see that the love between God and his people is strong and faithful. We can agree with the Psalmist and participate in the kind of adoration he's describing, singing, making melody, awaking with the dawn to praise God with our instruments!
