The music playing is titled
As the Deer Panteth for the Water
Performed by Kathy Troccoli
Composed by Martin J. Nystrom in 1984
This song is based on Psalm 42:1
...I found myself sitting at a piano trying to write a song. I was simply playing chord progressions when
I noticed a Bible on the music stand of the piano. It was open to Psalm 42. My eyes fell on the first
verse of that chapter. I wrote the first verse and the chorus of a song, pretty much straight
through. The whole of the adventure was completed in a matter of minutes.
- Martin Nystrom
Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Worship the Lord with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.
