Sing Praise to the Lord!
Tune: “Lyons” | Text by Henry W. Baker (based on Psalm 150) | high or medium voice, piano or organ
From now through November 30, enjoy a complimentary download of my setting of “Sing Praise to the Lord!” Written for baritone Todd Thomas, this vocal piece with keyboard accompaniment (in both high and medium versions) is well-suited for use in Thanksgiving services. Listen to a MIDI rendering and follow the text below.
Sing praise to the Lord! Praise him in the height;
rejoice in his word, you angels of light.
You heavens, adore him by whom you were made,
and worship before him in brightness arrayed.
Sing praise to the Lord! Praise him on the earth
in tuneful accord, you saints of new birth.
Praise him who has brought you his grace from above;
praise him who has taught you to sing of his love.
Sing praise to the Lord! All things that give sound,
each jubilant chord, reecho around.
Loud organs, his glory tell forth in deep tone,
and trumpets, the story of what he has done.
Sing praise to the Lord! Thanksgiving and song
to him be outpoured all ages along!
For love in creation, for heaven restored,
for grace of salvation, sing praise to the Lord—
for grace of salvation, sing praise to the Lord!
