Jehova Oa Busa (Psalm 93)

The image of God seated on a throne higher than oceans or floodwaters in Jehova Oa Busa tells us that faith sustains the faithful through all of life’s trials and tribulations, and the flowing, rising and falling melodic lines in triple metre beautifully convey this confident message of spiritual security. Of the five verses of Psalm 93 in the Christian Old Testament, Moerane chose verses 1, 4, 5, adapted them, and added, deleted, and repeated words in order to create a three-verse hymn or anthem. With pauses and rests between verses 1 and 2, he clearly imagined the song for church use, and the Soprano line is wonderfully mellifluous to sing. With the download of this song when it is purchased, comes a free mp3 of the spoken lyrics, to help choirs with their Sesotho pronunciation.
