Psalm 9

For the director of music. To the tune of “The Death of the Son.”
A psalm of David.

I will give thanks to you, LORD, with all my heart;
I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.
I will be glad and rejoice in you;
I will sing the praises of your name, O Most High.

– Psalm 9:1-2

These two beginning verses of this psalm have been turned into a beautiful and simple song in more modern times, with different variations and melodies.¬† I included the psalm introduction because it made me wonder what the song “The Death of The Son” was about, if it was the death of David’s first son with¬† Bathsheba, and what that tune sounded like.
