Marie J. Post (PHH 5) wrote this versification of Psalm 150 in 1972; it was first published in the 1974 Psalter Hymnal Supplement. The "Hallelujah" coda was added for the 1987 Psalter Hymnal. Psalm 150 was Post's favorite psalm; she said the lyrics came very easily to her for this versification. See PHH 150 for textual commentary on Psalm 150.

Liturgical Use:
A marvelous processional–alternate the singing of stanzas with instrumental-only versions of the tune. See also PHH 150.
