Lord, When We Praise You with Glorious Music
Lord, when we praise You with glorious music
Using our giftedness solely for You:
When we return to You songs that exalt You,
When they inspire all the things that we do:
Life has a fullness, life has excitement,
For we are learning the glory is Yours;
And in our hearts we are looking for heaven,
When we shall give you unceasing applause.
