Songs from the Voice, Volume 1: Please Don’t Make Us Sing This Song

Friends from all over the country flew to Kansas City, and in four days, we recorded an album of worship songs. There were no overdubs; we did it all live together in the studio, playing everything from acoustic guitars to organs to auto harps to synthesizers and DJ rigs. The songs are written pretty much verbatim from the texts of Psalms in a new translation of the Bible that’s being put out by World Publishing (under Thomas Nelson). It should be available in stores any day now. If you don’t buy it here, go to your local Christian bookstore, and ask them about it. You may need to tell them that Thomas Nelson is selling it (they’re a bookseller, not a music seller). -waterdeep It's a great album. I've been enjoying listening to it. I recommend buying this album and support Christian artists like these. You can hear it on this website http://www.hearthevoice.com./ To buy the album click on the above album cover picture or the "waterdeep" link. Track List

Those Who Walk The Fields To Sow (Psalm 126) by Lori Chaffer Across the hills Over the oceans wide Your goodness would not hide We shook our heads All of us were stunned To see what You had done Those who walk the fields to sow Casting their seed in tears Will one day tread those same long rows Amazed by what's appeared And still, Lord, some Are held captive and poor Release them, and restore Like river beds- If dry, let them taste rain- And spring to life again Let The Name Of God Be High (Psalm 113) by Don Chaffer All of you who call yourselves the children of God Lift His name to the high place in your hearts From the moment the sun rises From the place it crests the earth To the moment the sun sets, and To the place it slips into the sea Let the name of God be high Let the name of God be high In the hearts of His people Let the name of God be high Let the name of God be high In the hearts of His people Morning to evening Midnight to noon At this moment And for all the moments that are yet to come Let His name ascend in the hearts of His people

Do you know if there are tabs or sheet music available for this music? I love the album, and have been listening to it for years now, but I would really love to learn a few of the tracks on guitar - right now, especially, "Let the Name of God be High".
