Representative Text

1 O sing to the Lord with a psalm of thanksgiving,
For great is His wisdom, and great is His love;
Your voices raise heavenward, that angels in glory
May join in our chorus, and sing it above.

Refrain:
O sing unto Jesus, the Ancient of Days;
Rejoice, while our song of thanksgiving we raise.

2 As brothers in Christ we are banded together,
New light and new life to receive from His love;
May God’s Holy Spirit, the heavenly Revealer,
Illumine our hearts with His truth from above. [Refrain]

3 Then sing to the Lord, for the Lord’s name is glorious,
Each voice be uplifted to join in the strain,
Till all things on earth shall re-echo in chorus
Our song of thanksgiving again and again. [Refrain]
