New song based on Psalm 147: ‘How good it is to sing God’s praise’

Here’s another new song I’ve written with Rob Spink. This one is based on Psalm 147. It’s a slightly quirky tune that perfectly matches the quirky words of the Psalm – yet still easy to play and sing!

Here’s a lead sheet in C and here’s a lead sheet in D.

How good it is to sing God’s praise,
how pleasant to recount his ways,
his faithful love through endless days.

2. The greatness of our God proclaim,
who calls upon each star by name
his mighty power is unrestrained.
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu, hallelujah.

3. At his command each rain drop falls;
he feeds the ravens when they call:
his boundless love is felt by all.

4. He scatters snow and hail like ash,
and none can stand his icy blast.
Yet at his word they do not last.
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu, hallelujah.

5. The broken-hearted in distress,
and souls weighed down by weariness
shall find in him eternal rest.

6. Let’s sing to God with grateful praise,
with music come, your voices raise:
he is our King, the Lord who saves.
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu, hallelujah.
