Shout for joy, come before the Lord

Representative Text

1 Shout for joy! come before the Lord with singing;
Young and old wake the glad refrain;
Praise Jehovah! to him your tribute bringing,
Till the skies echo back the strain.
Praise the Father who loves his children ever—
Chant his goodness in cheerful song;
He, our God, will forsake his people never;
Endless praises to him belong.
Shout for joy! come before the Lord with singing;
Young and old wake the glad refrain;
Praise Jehovah! to him your tribute bringing,
Till the skies echo back the strain.

2 Praise the Son, who has brought us free salvation—
Pardon, peace, through his precious blood;
Bringing home, out of every tribe and nation,
Wand'ring souls to the fold of God.
Holy Spirit, our Comforter in sadness,
Kindly Light, leading pilgrims on—
Thee we praise in a grateful hymn of gladness,
With the Father and Holy Son.
Holy Spirit, our Comforter in sadness,
Kindly Light, leading pilgrims on—
Thee we praise in a grateful hymn of gladness,
With the Father and Holy Son.
