Clarence P. Walhout (PHH 6) was a member of the Poets' Workshop that prepared many of the versifications for the Psalter Hymnal. His setting of this royal psalm was written to be sung to the tune GENEVAN 93, chosen because it had long been a favorite in the Dutch psalm-singing tradition. Earlier editions of the Psalter Hymnal had not included this tune. For commentary on this royal psalm see PHH 93.
See PHH 93.
