Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Our June fund drive (one of two such drives we offer each year) ends soon (on June 30), and we have almost reached our goal. If you haven't given yet, would you consider doing so today? Keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So, if you benefit from Hymnary.org, you can make your tax-deductible contribution through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

st. 2 = Ps. 95:3-7
st. 3 = Ps. 95:7b-ll

This unrhymed versification of Psalm 95 was written primarily by Cor Wm. Barendrecht (PHH 326) and Calvin Seerveld (PHH 22), both members of the group of writers who worked on the psalter section. Like the previous song (172), this psalm text was prepared to be sung to its Genevan psalm tune because of its long associa¬tion in the Dutch Reformed tradition. Earlier editions of the Psalter Hymnal had not included this tune. For commentary on this psalm see PHH 95.

Liturgical Use:
Beginning of worship (especially st. 1-2); during confession of sin or as a sung prayer for illumination (st. 3). See also PHH 95.
