Mission Praise and Psalm Singing

This won't be of interest to many people - but I'd have been glad to lay my hands on this list. I just couldn't find it on the web. 
It is a list of songs in the 'Complete' Mission Praise book that in some way are 'singing the psalms'. I have included hymns based upon psalms as well as some very short choruses that are a verse or two of a psalm. I make it 37. I expect I have missed some. 
When you think that there are 1250 songs in Mission Praise it is a pretty low number given Ephesians 5:19-20. 

Psalm 13 - MP 848 How long, O Lord, will You forget?
Psalm 16 -MP 886 Lord, when the storms of life arise
Psalm 18 - MP 286 I love You, O Lord, You Alone
Psalm 23 - MP 649 The King of Love 660 & 1008 The Lord's my shepherd

Appreciate your hard work, Tim. It's surprising Mission Praise haven't commissioned a decent index which links Scriptures to hymns considering the millions that use it and the link between sermons and Scripture, Christian meetings inspired by Scripture etc.
