Songs for Worship

Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him.  Praise the LORD with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre. Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.

Psalm 33:1-3 (NIV)

 

   

A New Song

 

Background

This worship song is based on Psalm 40, especially verses 1-9.  You can read it here.  It is a celebration of God's rescue and renewal.  God does more than merely lift us out of the mire.  He puts a song in our mouths and sets us before the assembly to sing of his love.

Psalm 40 has always been one of my favorite psalms, in large part because I identify with what the psalm is all about.  God has delivered me and continually puts new songs in my mouth.  I praise him for his goodness and grace!

Lyrics

Verse 1
I have waited patiently for you, Lord.
And you turned to me and heard my cry.
You have lifted me out of the mire,
And set my feet upon the Rock on high. 

Chorus
You put a new song in my mouth
A hymn of praise to you, my God
For now I see your love for me
And I put my trust in you
You put a new song in my mouth
A hymn of praise to you, my God
For now I see your love for me
And I sing to you a new song, a new song. 

Verse 2
Blessed is the one who trusts in you, Lord,
Who does not look aside to other gods.
Many are the blessings you have given.
I could never start to count them all. 

Bridge
Sacrifice and offering you do not want from me
Without a heart that’s set upon your will.
Now I stand before you and I lift my voice to sing.
I will proclaim, I will proclaim, I will proclaim Your love.
