Author L. L. Larkins has provided a fantastic resource for anyone who loves the book of Psalms. In Psalm Hymns, she has paraphrased the lyrics of the 150 psalms so they can be sung to familiar hymn tunes. For example, her set of lyrics for Psalm 23 and the way she has set them to “Away in a Manger” are one of my favorites. This volume can be used as a devotional companion for reading the book of Psalms. Pastors and teachers can also use the Psalm-Hymns created by Larkins to introduce or conclude their sermons or lessons from the book of Psalms. This volume is also a great resource for small group Bible studies. However you use it, Psalm Hymns will take you deeper into the message of the psalms and help you express your praise and lament to God.
