Dunn, Valerie Margery. (Temple City, California, January 18, 1932- ). Presbyterian. While assistant editor of the Presbyterian Record (Toronto) (1961-1978), she became connected with Teen and Twenty Chapel, a group of writers and artists interested in contemporary worship, and supervised production of the collection they issued, Let the Cosmos Ring: Songs for a Century of Peace and Tumult (1968). Some of her lyrics were also published in the Record and in Praise Ways (1975); later she provided the words for an audience-participation musical, Noögenesis (1980).

The verses are best taken antiphonally, the main company singing 'Praise him' (and holding the last note each time), and a leader or group singing 'with the tap of the typewriter' etc. Further verses can be added.
