Psalm 151 in a time of Coronavirus

What if the psalmist were alive in the age of COVID-19? How would his lamentations speak to the times?

This is a question a group of choral singers have tried to answer – with tongue firmly implanted in cheek – in a YouTube video that has gone viral in Britain:

“O Lord, to whom ǀ hygiene be longeth: Hear the cry of thy servants when they call. For we lie in self-isolation: And there is nothing on TV.

For lo, the nation is adrift: The princes of the people have cast us from the pub.

Thy people do run about the shops in panic: They stockpile all the loo roll and the bakèd beans.” (Psalm 151, In a time of Coronavirus)
