SINGING THE PSALMS As the Israelites sang the Psalms on pilgrimage to Jerusalem, so we sing the psalms in our worship. The Psalms in our hymnal are pointed for singing. Each psalm verse is divided into two parts, with an asterisk indicating the point of division. Most of the text of each half verse is sung to a reciting tone. At the point of the vertical line the final two or three syllables are sung to the notes provided. Our Psalm this morning is sung to Melody B which may be found in the front part of the hymnal on page xxvi. You may wish to look at the tune before we begin the Psalmody.
