Make a joyful noise! … now with leadsheet

I’m currently on ministers retreat at the “James Byrne Centre” just outside Toowoomba, Australia. It’s an absolutely glorious day to usher in the first day of the Oz spring. Just prior to settling down to finally finish Brian McLaren’s “Everything Must Change” I drove 5 minutes down the road to get the newspapers – creature of habit that I am!

Driving back – totally out of the blue the words of Psalm 100 came to mind, along as is invariably the case a matching melody line. And so, a new song is born. Thanks God. Haven’t written all that many overt praise songs over the years – thanks to the psalmist, there’s no doubt about this one. Music score will be there once back is Brissy this Thursday – if I can’t help myself before then. Here it is:

CHORUS
Make a joyful noise to God
Sing it, all the earth
Worship God in shouts of praise
Sing with joy to God

1. You alone are God
We’re fruit of your creation
We belong to you
The sheep of your great pasture

2. Lord, with thankful hearts
We come within your presence
You are goodness. grace
Your faithfulness forever

BRIDGE:
make a joyful noise to god (rpt)

(C) David MacGregor
From Psalm 100
