Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

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.
