Trinity Psalter Hymnal Resources

Trinity Psalter Hymnal

Psalm Texts, Page Scans, and Recordings

This page provides a partial list of online resources associated with the psalms in the Trinity Psalter Hymnal. It seeks to help pastors, musicians, and church members in gaining familiarity with the music of the Trinity Psalter Hymnal by sharing resources that are already freely available online. See the official Trinity Psalter Hymnal website for a variety of other resources, including ordering information for print copies and digital PDF editions. See this playlist for songs from the Trinity Psalter Hymnal for listening (not congregational singing).

Generally, the availability of these resources is limited to metrical settings and tunes that are in the public domain or administered by the Trinity Psalter Hymnal Joint Venture of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church and the United Reformed Churches in North America. The list also includes recordings of some psalms administered by Crown & Covenant Publications, which are available through their YouTube channel.

This table includes the following links to resources:

  • t: A plain-text version of the psalm setting–lyrics only.
  • p: A page scan of the psalm setting–lyrics and sheet music.
  • v: A video recording of the psalm setting for singing along.

Where possible, I have provided links to YouTube videos with recordings of each psalm setting that are suitable for singing along (either congregational recordings or instrumental tracks). The matches are not always exact; sometimes the recording includes slightly different words, a different harmonization, a different number of stanzas, or an alternate tune. Often, the song numbers in the video reflect an old numbering scheme from the 1912 United Presbyterian Psalter or the 1959/1976 CRC Psalter Hymnal. See the Psalter Hymnal Resource Library for a fuller list of resources related to the blue Psalter Hymnal.

This is an ongoing and hastily-assembled project. Please contact me if you notice errors or have additions to suggest. Many of the YouTube videos are not associated with URC Psalmody; they may change or disappear at any time.
