i am interested in including the song 'I delight to do your will' in worship. do you know the copyright status of this piece?many thanks,
I've emailed the author to find out!
A suggestion for Psalm 40 is "New Song (Number Forty)" by Andra Moran and Josh Elson. It can be found in the Chalice Praise hymnal of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), #9.
U2's song "40," is on their 1983 album War. For many years, this is the song they used to close their concerts. It is straight out of the psalter. 2 minutes and 8 seconds and is worth a listen at least. If I had AV capabilities where we worship, I'd almost certainly use it. Many versions are available on YouTube if you're not acquainted with it.
Thanks Peter and Laura for these suggestions. I cannot believe that I had not thought of 40 before! I have added both your suggestions to the updated version of this page. I really appreciate your contributions!
