Verse 1

Sing a psalm of joy
Shout in celebration
Let the tambourine
And the trumpet bring
Praises to our King
For his great salvation

Verse 2

Sound the festal horn
Your thanksgiving voicing
Praise the LORD your God
As he did command
When from Egypt’s land
You came forth rejoicing

Verse 3

Tune our hearts to praise
Turn our ears to hear you
Then in thankfulness
May we walk your way
And from day to day
Honor and adore you

Verse 4

When in need you cried
I was near and saved you
From the cloud I spoke
Answered your request
Meribah the test
I did not forsake you

Verse 5

O my people hear
When I call you listen
Choose no foreign god
Listen to my plea
Have no god but me
Come and be forgiven

Verse 6

I the LORD your God
Brought you out of Egypt
I removed your yoke
All your needs supplied
Open your mouth wide
Surely I will fill it

Verse 7

Oh that Israel
Would but hear my pleading
Oh that they would turn
Walk upon my path
I would pour my wrath
On their foes unheeding

Verse 8

With the finest wheat
I, your LORD, would fee you.
Honey from the rock
I would gladly give
that you all might live.
Hear me, O my people.

Composer: "Genevan Psalter"; harm. Dale Grotenhuis

Includes Wide Format PowerPoint file!

Updated Format! Beginning in November of 2016, we changed the way we formatted our PowerPoint files. The font is larger and the staff lines are bolder, making the songs easier to read from a greater distance, including smaller screens/monitors in the rear of the sanctuary.

All songs digitized previous to that date are in the "older" format.
