Joyful Lord – (Sheryl Rohm and Ken Behrens 2012)
Come let's sing to our King and Mighty Lord, we sing for joy, we clap our hands, joyful Lord.
We stand up high, we wave our hands, see us Lord, praising you is fun to do, joyful Lord.
1. The sacrifice we're bringing is laughing dancing singing, until His praise is ringing,
We'll give a shout “we love you Lord” So...
2. We'll praise you in the Spirit, so all the world can hear it, and all learn not to fear it,
And soon they too will dance to you, so...
3. O God our fortress tower, we'll praise you by the hour, for all your mighty power,
We'll sing your glory to the world, so...
4. We'll jump up from our seat and we'll praise you on our feet and, we'll know we're never beaten,
And anyone can play along, so...
5. While everlasting praises each heavenly angel raises, so now on earth the craze is
To sing until we're full of joy, so...
Glory into Glory (Ken Behrens 2002)
Glory into glory, we celebrate and sing, Glory into glory as children of the King
1. Sing the song of light in the darkness, sing the song of the Son of Man,
Sing the song of sinners reborn, sing of the blood of the Lamb.
2. Sing the song of tongues of fire, sing the song of the rushing wind,
Sing the song of a people empowered, let His day begin.
3. Sing the pain of Creation longing, waiting Messiah's glorious day
Sing of His Body, standing ready, “Send us Lord, we pray”
4. Sing the song of final harvest, sing the harvest Master's praise,
Sing the song we'll sing forever “Glorious in all your ways”
Joyful Joyful We Adore Thee – traditional
Joyful joyful we adore thee, God of glory, Lord of love.
Hearts unfurl like flowers before thee, opening to the sun above.
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness, drive the dark of doubt away.
Giver of immortal gladness, fill us with the light of day.
All thy works with joy surround thee, earth and heaven reflect thy rays.
Stars and angels sing around thee, center of unbroken praise.
Field and forest, vale, and mountain, flowery meadow, flashing sea,
Chanting bird and flowing fountain call us to rejoice in thee.
Thou art giving and forgiving, ever blessing, ever blest,
Wellspring of the joy of living, ocean depth of happy rest.
Thou, our Father, Christ our Brother, all who live in love are thine.
Teach us how to love each other, lift us to the joy divine.
Mortals, join the mighty chorus, which the morning stars began.
Father love is reigning o'er us, brother love binds man to man.
Ever singing, march we onward, victors in the midst of strife.
Joyful music leads us sunward, in the triumph song of life.
