Psalm 150: Praising Hashem with All of the Vowels

B"H

To find the vowel connected to each Hallelu, just find the vowel comes immediately after word "Hallelu." If a vowel has already been used, find the next available vowel. The last three Hallelu's stand for the three Chatafs. (It might be worth noting that they repeat the word Tziltzeleh (which has three shvahs).
