With Songs of Praise

 

Lyrics

  1. 1. With songs of praise and gratitude

    We worship God above,

    In words and music give our thanks

    For his redeeming love.

  2. [Chorus]

    Then come before God’s presence!

    With singing worship him!

    Express the heart too full to speak

    In one exultant hymn.

  3. 2. The Lord has said a heartfelt song

    By righteous ones is prayer;

    A hymn unites us and invites

    The Spirit to be there.

  4. 3. In former days glad hymns were sung

    By seed of Abraham;

    The Saints shall sing, when Christ shall come,

    The new song of the Lamb.
