About the Book

There’s a soundtrack at the center of the Scriptures. It’s called The Psalms.

The Psalms are songs, written not for reading but singing. What if we could sing them again, claiming the Psalms as the soundtrack of our lives? In this forty-day devotional guide, J. D. Walt shows us a way.

Each daily entry begins with a psalm followed by a short reflection; not a list of things to do, but a simple plan to invite the Holy Spirit to weave melody and message into your day. And yes, we will provide melodies here at for each day so you can sing along.

Devotional themes designed to spark study and discussion include:

  • Understanding the Psalms as a Sing-Along Rather than a Solo Performance
  • Why Optimism Isn’t the Solution for Pessimism
  • Why Queen’s “We Are the Champions” Is Actually a Lament
  • The Journey from “Born This Way” to “Born Again”

When we sing the Psalms, we join our voices with the singer and the songwriter of all the ages past and all eternity to come, Jesus Christ. Nothing has the power to unite people and generations like singing the Word of God. It’s time we start singing the Psalms again.
