Al Señor Clamé

Jessica Figueroa, vocals – Rory Chambers, guitar – at Princeton Theological Seminary

This song is inspired by the words of Psalms 120 and 121.  I originally set only 120 but I added Psalm 121 for the second verse, because I think that Psalm 121 is the reorientation toward hope from the rawness of 120.

I called the tune Rio Frío because I wrote it during a trip to the Texas hill country, and I was near the river with that name.
