The people are cheering happily to God, the people are praising Him,
God took on flesh, came to live among us.
Through all disgrace and shame, He gave us salvation.
It’s Such a Joy to Be an Honest Person
Wasn’t clear for whom man should live. Now I’ve got the answer for it. I used to live just for myself, seeking only status and fame. Prayer to God full of fine words, yet holding to my own way in real life. Faith based upon future and fate, I have no truth or reality. Rituals and rules, confining my faith; I was left with nothing but emptiness. Failing to live as a human, I don’t deserve God’s love for me.
From heaven to the earth, hiding in the flesh. Working among men, through winds and rains. Taking a rough path, open a new age. To redeem mankind, lay down Your life and shed blood. Wind and rain, so many years. Forsaken by every man. Humble and hidden, enduring all along. Humble and hidden, enduring all along.
Dear Almighty God, I hear what you said.
Holding Your words in my hands, tears stream down my face.
Every word is warm to my heart, draws me closer to You.
Freed from my passiveness, I rise to follow You.
Now my eyes are opened, my heart filled with remorse.
Ready to be born again and live out what You desire.
I will return Your love, offer everything I am,
bearing strong witness to comfort Your heart.
Praise Almighty God in the Most Holy Place.
Praise You with tambourines and dances. Praise You aloud!
Praise Almighty God with musical instruments and the sound of the trumpet.
Let all the holy people in Zion praise You, Almighty God!
Praise You aloud, Almighty God! The loud peals of thunder praise You.
The mighty expanse praises Almighty God. Let everything that has breath praise You.
Let all peoples praise You! The singing of praise shakes the ends of the earth.
Let all peoples praise You! The singing of praise shakes the ends of the earth. Praise God!
