A Joyful Noise
By Lucia K Haase
Clash the symbols! Bang the drums! –
for the Lord is near!
Sing your praises – shout or hum,
for the Lord to hear!
Strum the harps and blow the horns!
Clap your hands and sing!
Sound your praises to adorn
Jesus Christ the King!
Shout it loud, so others hear –
play the world a song!
Sing the words, ‘The Lord is near!’
Let your voice be strong!
Blow the trumpets! Tune the lyres!
Sing and sing and sing!!
Lift your voices – hear the choir
JESUS CHRIST IS KING!!!!!
‘Make a joyful noise unto the Lord…
come before his presence with singing.’
