The Psalms of Ascents were sung by Israelites as they made their way to Jerusalem for the annual feasts of Passover, Pentecost, and Tabernacles. As pilgrim songs, they provide a way for believers to express their fears, needs, and aspirations as they journey through this life.
These psalms are also the songs of Jesus. In this book and its companion volume, To Be a Pilgrim, discover how these ancient songs of Israel affect your faith today, point you to the future, and help you keep your eyes on Christ every step of the way.
