I've begun a years long project of putting the book of psalms into "modern" song, but with minimal changes in the text. Taken from the NIV translation, this is psalm 1. I can't say how challenging it is to try to write non-metered lyrics into music, but it is fun. Follow it at www.krismacqueen.com.

Psalm 1 (NIV)
1 Blessed is the man
who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked
or stand in the way of sinners
or sit in the seat of mockers.

2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
and on his law he meditates day and night.

3 He is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither.
Whatever he does prospers.

4 Not so the wicked!
They are like chaff
that the wind blows away.

5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

6 For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked will perish.
