Notes

Scripture References: st. 1 = Ps. 150:2 st. 2 = Ps. 150:1, 6 st. 3 = Ps. 150:3-5 st. 4 = Ps. 150:3-5 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. --Psalter Hymnal Handbook
