Singing with Grace to the Lord

Verse 1:
Come into His presence with singing,
O worship the Lord with a song,
A tribute of gratitude bringing,
To Him to whom praises belong;
But oh, while you join in thanksgiving,
With voices in tuneful accord,
Remember He watches your living,
And sing with your hearts to the Lord.

Refrain:
Singing, singing,
This is true worship and love;
Living, singing,
This is accepted above.

Verse 2:
Not yet as the angels in heaven,
May mortals their gratitude sing;
Not here upon earth is it given,
Perfection of service to bring;
But earnest and true adoration,
The heart in the hymn and the pray’r,
Will be an accepted oblation,
And lighten life’s burden and care.

Verse 3:
Then come to His courts with rejoicing,
And join in the chorus of praise;
The pray’r and the anthem but voicing
The thanks which your loving hearts raise;
With grace in your hearts even duty
Will change into pleasure ere long,
And seeing the King in His beauty,
Your life shall then be as a song.
