The Psalter of 1912 puts to hymn every psalm, often with more than one hymn per psalm. It is the Psalter I have been looking for - not a chant of two verses for each psalm, but rather a complete hymn. The Trinity Hymnal, published by Great Commission Publications of Orthodox Presbyterian Church and Presbyterian Church in America includes a large number of hymns from this Psalter, and led me to look up this Psalter to find more similar hymns. I look forward to praying through and singing many of these musical psalms.
