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