Norman L. Warren (PHH 15), a clergyman in Leamington Spa, England, composed YVONNE in 1972 for this text. Text and tune were published together in Psalm Praise (1973). The tune is named in honor of Warren's wife.
With its stepwise motion and strong rhythmic patterns, YVONNE is easily singable. Sing the framing stanzas in unison and the three middle stanzas in parts.
