sing a new song!

man in praiseI’ve written a praise song!

Over the years, in actual fact, I haven’t written all that many songs of praise and adoration of God. Plenty of songs of thanksgiving about what God has done … but no so much in praise to God.  Sure, I have written the odd song over the years and I would like to think it’s been there in my music, but anyhow …

… last week as I was doing my weekly worship preparation, I began reflecting on Psalm 98 … one of the set readings for Sunday 10 November. I was taken (put it down to the Spirit) with some of the wonderful imagery in that Psalm; stuff about the rivers clapping their hands and the mountains shouting with joy.

I was also mindful that with Dale and me now back from long-service leave … and us moving on from Oxley in a matter of months, we are in an interesting ‘space’ in our lives.  We know in all sorts of ways that God has a chapter of our lives to shortly close, and a new chapter about to be revealed.  Time to sing a new song!

So, here is that new song. Quite some time since I last wrote a song … but that’s for another day.
Here it is. Enjoy … and praise be to God!

Sing a new song    

O sing to the Lord
a brand new song
Sing a new song, sing a new song
God will judge in fairness
the right from wrong
Sing a new song, sing a new song

Shout your praise to God
Sing out loud to God
Join your voices; one in praise
Mountains shout with joy
Rivers clap their hands
to the Lord of all our days

God’s love ever steadfast,
faithful, strong
Sing a new song, sing a new song
All the ends of the earth
join the chorus throng
Sing a new song, sing a new song

The Lord has made his salvation known
Sing a new song, sing a new song
God in Christ has claimed us
as his own
Sing a new song, sing a new song
