Sing a Joyful Song to the Lord

-------

Sing a joyful song to the Lord

Sing Him praise and thanks

Sing of blessings from the Lord

Alleluia! Holy, Holy, Holy is His name

----------

My heart once was

Of blackest sin

And heavy was its burden

--

I sought out righteousness

But not from Him

Myself, I thought, could find it

----------

Sing a joyful song to the Lord

Sing Him praise and thanks

Sing of blessings from the Lord

Alleluia! Holy, Holy, Holy is His name

----------

I tried good works

But all in vain

The guilt inside, like glue, remained

--

It wasn't 'till later

That I could see

Good works are fruit, not the tree

----------

Sing a joyful song to the Lord

Sing Him praise and thanks

Sing of blessings from the Lord

Alleluia! Holy, Holy, Holy is His name

----------

On Calvary's hill

At last I did see

Jesus died so I could be free

--

Nothing can I do

To earn my righteousness

Jesus did it all, I overflow with thankfulness

----------

Sing a joyful song to the Lord

Sing Him praise and thanks

Sing of blessings from the Lord

Alleluia! Holy, Holy, Holy is His name

----------

Oh praise the Lord

My soul shall sing

Grace he gives abundantly

--

Blind eyes shall see

Thank you, Lord!

It is well with my soul forevermore

----------

Sing a joyful song to the Lord

Sing Him praise and thanks

Sing of blessings from the Lord

Alleluia! Holy, Holy, Holy is His name
