this was an attempt at making a tune where the vocal melody was nonredundant with the chords (or never found in any of the notes of any of the chords). Almost succeeded - but it was fun trying.

This is another version of the same tune used in Dana's Song. I just changed the lyrics. It was created back in 1999 with the help of Alontoner K.Scot. This is my own way of looking at a beautiful text - Psalm 139.
