Story behind the song
I wrote this after I attended my first contemporary worship service, more or less as an experiment. I wanted to see if I could write something with a similar feel to the praise and worship music I had just heard. I don't know if I succeeded or not, but I like the song.
Lyrics
Give Thanks To The Lord For He Is Good. And His mercy shall endure forever. Lift up your voice, sing praises and rejoice. Give Thanks To The Lord For He Is Good. Let all people praise His holy name, and exhalt Him over all creation. Let the nations sing, He is our God and King. Let all people praise His holy name. Jesus! O Jesus! My savior and my God, my Lord and King. Jesus! O Jesus! Forever of your glory I'll sing, Forever of your glory I'll sing. Let all those who love Him make Him known. And proclaim Him before all nations. Let us walk in His ways, and always give Him praise. Let all those who love Him make Him known. Jesus! O Jesus! My savior and my God, my Lord and King. Jesus! O Jesus! Forever of your glory I'll sing, Forever of your glory I'll sing. Jesus! O Jesus! My savior and my God, my Lord and King. Jesus! O Jesus! Forever of your glory I'll sing, Forever of your glory I'll sing.
