ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
These psalms are the songs of a persecuted people. They can seem strange in our western hands, hands that have never seen war, or famine, or severe oppression. We have been deeply insulated from the world these songs address. This is both a blessing and a curse to us; a blessing that we have felt safe and secure, a curse that our security, which came from the hand of God, has left us distant from the One who is our true security. We need different eyes, and different ears, if we would gain the benefit God provides in these psalms.

Experiencing outward oppression make them spring to life. It is a good exercise for believers in the west to put themselves in the shoes of our siblings who are persecuted for their faith in other parts of the world, to sing these psalms in solidarity with them, on their behalf, as it were. Sing to God His songs of deliverance for His persecuted people. The Lord hears our prayers, and especially loves the sort which expresses His own thoughts.

We have oppression and violence here, too, which we need to keep in mind. We cloak it in respectability and legality, but our supposedly free societies are up to our necks in the innocent blood of our own children, whom we have murdered in the name of freedom. Try putting yourself in baby shoes and sing these psalms, praying that the Lord would bring this evil to an end.

This album was born from a desire to bless the people of God with songs they could sing in the face of trouble. In the death of my son Judah Soles, my house has faced trouble deep. I set out to honor his memory in this way, and as a result I found this project very difficult to build. But God is faithful, and has brought us at long last to its completion, for which I thank Him.


Many thanks are due to Valerie Soles, my shelter in the storm, whose faith in God is deep indeed, who would read the Scriptures to me when I could not do it. She was my tether in a wild wind. Her excellent voice harmonizes many of these songs, and I thank God for her. Thanks to my excellent daughter Jewel, whom the Lord has delivered from deep waters, who added her harmonies to some of the songs. Thanks to Chris McIntyre, for all the time spent recording, mixing, mastering; to Craig Learmont, who kindly added a bunch of instruments, as is his wont. And many thanks to all of those who funded this project through Kickstarter! I was blessed beyond measure by you.
