Lyrics
  • Sing a new song to the Lord
  • Come and give praise to His name
  • It’s a new day He has made
 
  • Hallelujah! Lift your voices to the Lord
  • Hallelujah! Sing your praises to His name
  • Hallelujah! If He’s blessed you in your life
 
  • Holy holy, worthy of praise!
  • King of glory; great are His ways
  • Strong and mighty; able to save
 
  • We can praise Him! We can praise Him!
  • His name has been lifted high, and that’s why
  • As long as there are gifts to bring… As long as there are words to sing

Lyrics
  • I see the pretenders embellish their claims
  • Wisdom has vendors with varying aim
  • I see how the plagiarist writes wittier scripts
  • I hear the truth coming from your lyin’ lips
 
  • Among the industrious are some insincere
  • They love being illustrious – but hate their career
  • They’re cryin’ while countin’ their championships
 
  • They bottle their truths
  • They stock up their shelves
  • Show me the fools
  • Who aren’t fooling themselves

Lyrics
    • Oh, by and by – by and by
    • I’m gon’ lay down this heavy load
     
    • I know my robe’s gonna fit me well
    • I tried it on at the gates of hell
     
  • Oh, one of these mornings – it won’t be long
  • You’ll look for me and I’ll be gone
 
  • Oh, when I get to heaven, gonna sing and shout
  • There’s nobody there to turn me out

Lyrics
    • Up with the sun – the new day dawns
    • Breath in my lungs and a new song
    • I will not forget all the benefits (of)
    • Knowing the Lord – knowing the Lord
     
    • Here is the crown that comes with suffering
    • Here is the power of resurrection
    • Righteousness in Christ, and eternal life
     
    • I consider all things – consider all things nothing next to knowing the Lord
  •  
  •  
    • Beware the dogs and evildoers
    • Beware the thrones of the wicked rulers
  •  
  •  
    • Not that I’ve obtained these things – that’s why I press on
    • Toward the goal to win the prize for which God called me home
    • Leaving what’s behind – straining toward what lies ahead
    • He’s bid me come and die and He has raised me from the dead

Lyrics
    • Let me not waste any light caught in a daydream
    • Let me not wake in the night caught up in the mainstream – way downstream
    • Driftin’ on party boats, hopin’ my body floats
    • After last call (and just before the waterfall)
     
    • (‘cause) One day… I’ll be caught up in heaven with You
    • And those who have fallen asleep will finally meet in the clouds
    • One day… the trumpet shall send out a sign
    • And You’ll bring an end to these times of pain
    • And those who remain shall be caught up – shall be caught up
     
    • Let me not numb the discomfort – pain is the warning
    • Let me not bury my head in the sand tryin’ to pretend it won’t matter in the end
    • Caught tryin’ to outrun every ray of the sun
    • Caught tryin’ to game the system (playin’ the victim)
     
    • I’m saved – they tell me I’m saved – the rest is just details as long as I’m saved
    • So that’s what I thought before I got caught in this tailspin
     
    • Caught tryin’ to outrun every ray of the sun
    • Willingly playin’ the victim

Lyrics
    • Lord, I get tired of opinions – especially, I think, my own
    • The Left and all their minions – the Right and all their little clones
    • I get tired the biggest platforms are built in Hollywood
    • But not too tired to do some good – not too tired to do some good
     
    • Lord, I get tired of spendin’ money – ‘cause that means I’ve got to earn some more
    • I get tired of bein’ funny – in the middle of a holy war
    • I get tired I can’t seem to change the things I wish I could
     
    • Not too tired – not too tired to do what’s required
    • If I’m inspired – that’s not to be admired
    • It’s kinda like I’ve been hired – no one loves gettin’ fired
 
    • I get tired here in transit – some day I hope to settle down
    • I get tired of being this candid – they run the truth right outta town
    • Lord, I’m tired of bein’ an alien – alone, misunderstood
 
    • If I can, I know I should – and I’m not too tired to do some good
