Notes: Clap on beats two and three of the refrain. The clapping pattern could continue under the reading of the text. The leader should take care to ensure that the refrain begins on beat one. (The temptation for the congregation will be to enter with the hand clap on beat 2.) Alternatively, an ensemble may prepare a clapping accompaniment for the reading or chanting of the psalm, or all may be invited to improvise their own clapping rhythms with a percussive crescendo leading into the singing of each refrain. The refrain comes from a larger composition by John Bell. The full composition is published in several hymnals and is available from GIA Publications.
