With Songs of Praise

Joyfully

1. With songs of praise and gratitude

We worship God above,

In words and music give our thanks

For his redeeming love.

[Chorus]

Then come before God’s presence!

With singing worship him!

Express the heart too full to speak

In one exultant hymn.

2. The Lord has said a heartfelt song

By righteous ones is prayer;

A hymn unites us and invites

The Spirit to be there.

[Chorus]

Then come before God’s presence!

With singing worship him!

Express the heart too full to speak

In one exultant hymn.

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.

[Chorus]

Then come before God’s presence!

With singing worship him!

Express the heart too full to speak

In one exultant hymn.
