Psaltery and sackbut dream



God is gone up with lyres, harps, tambourines, sistrums, and instruments of all kinds
the LORD with lyres, harps, -
tambourines, harps,
tambourines, harps,
tambourines, harps, -
and sackbuts, 
the LORD and David with all Israel celebrating
lyres,
cornets,
dulcimers
harps,
psaltery,
tambourines,
castanets and
cymbals.
Now bring me
a minstrel.
And it came to pass, when the minstrel played,
that the hand of the LORD came on him.
that was the time when you did hear the sound of all kinds of instruments
while me, a dreaming minstrel boy did play.
