The Songs of Ascent: Psalm 123

The Songs of Ascent are a collection within the book of Psalms designed for singing on the way to the Temple. They are pilgrim songs, expressing a yearning for God and a delight in his presence. Stuart Holman explores this series of Psalms against the back drop of a ‘COVID lockdown’, inviting a godly dissatisfaction with present circumstances to drive us towards intimacy with God.
