  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.
  5. Text: Penelope Moody Allen, b. 1939. (c) 1985 IRI
    Music: Newel Kay Brown, b. 1932. (c) 1985 IRI
