Notes

Norman L. Warren (PHH 15) composed SAMSON for this text in 1972 for publication in Psalm Praise (1973). The tune was named after Warren's "small, very friendly" dog, a Border terrier. This simple folklike tune requires strong unison for congregational singing, with two beats to the bar. --Psalter Hymnal Handbook
