Psalms of Comfort

The recitation of psalms – sacred songs or hymns – in times of distress, uncertainty and thanksgiving provides comfort as they reflect a personal relationship with God. There are 150 psalms whose authorship is attributed to King David (10th century B.C.E.), and they are the most famous of all religious poetry, beseeching God’s mercy and protection. Some are recited every day, and others are particularly relevant in a time of mourning. If you are preparing for a funeral or unveiling, or just seeking personal comfort and knowledge, below are a few select psalms that we found meaningful.
