Post image for Original worship song — “Psalm 121 (Coming Home)”

About a month ago, a couple of coworkers of mine got together to brainstorm some ideas for our church‘s upcoming Advent worship season. We came up with a few exciting ideas, including themed postcards and magnets (like the image above), a three-part skit, beautiful liturgy settings, etc.

Additionally, I (sheepishly) volunteered to compose a song using our theme, “Coming Home.” So that’s exactly what I did.

The words are essentially straight out of Psalm 121, with a few additions. You’re welcome to listen and/or download it as you please. If you can’t see the embedded song below, click this link to listen.
