Metrical psalms are sung like hymns. We already know a number of such psalms from our past hymnals: “Oh, Bless the Lord, My Soul” is a metrical paraphrase of Psalm and “O God, Our Help in Ages Past” is a metrical paraphrase of Psalm Isaac Watts’ psalms (IW) Isaac Watts () took a completely different path from his predecessors.

He made no attempt to be faithful to the scriptural texts, but rather gave his metrical psalms a Christian, and in some cases a British interpretation. For example, in Psalm 47 the Book of Common Prayer has for verse 5. This also occurred in the previous hymn with the word “listening” which was shortened to two syllables as “list’ning.” This is a common practice with several English words that you will find in metered psalms, such as e’en (even), e’er (ever), heav’n (heaven), bless’d (blessed), ev’ry (every), and pow’r (power).

Some metrical psalters include melodies or even harmonizations. This metrical, words-only psalter has every verse of every psalm. A familiar tune is suggested for each selection. All but four tunes are found in the Trinity Hymnal or The Book of Psalms for Singing The Trinity Psalter just does not contain all the selections of the RPCNA's Book of Psalms .A hymn tune is the melody of a musical composition to which a hymn text is sung.

Musically speaking, a hymn is generally understood to have four-part (or more) harmony, a fast harmonic rhythm (chords change frequently), and no refrain or chorus.

From the .“Psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs” are all used in the Psalter referencing itself, so when used all together, it’s an obvious reference to the whole book.

Taken independently they may refer to other things, given the context, but all together they refer to the book of Psalms, especially since they are called “the word of Christ” and.
