The Lord is my drummer, I shall not rush.

    He maketh me to lay out in tasteful places;

    He leadeth me beside cool meter changes;

    He restoreth my "one".

    He leadeth me in the right repeats

    For His name's sake.

   Yea, though I read through the trickiest road maps,

   I will fear no train wrecks;

   For You are with it;

   Your ride and Your snare, they comfort me.

   You setteth up a solo for me

   In the presence of mine guitarists;

   You annointeth my lines with drive;

   My groove overflows.

   Surely good feel and swing will follow me All the tunes of each set;

   And I will dwell in the pocket

   The whole gig long.
