98

"Time for a new song!"

Sing your heart-song to the Maker
(Sink down into the Soul's base -
Rise up with the Spirit's high note):
"The Lord is my Champion, my friend,
And he'll keep on fighting 'til the end!"

Rap it. Clap it.
Moan the Blues.
Strike the drum.
Plug in the amp.
Make a joyful noise!

Make a joyful noise to the Creator
(Break into a Irish jig -
Sing your ode to joy):
Electric guitars growling;
Choirs of the broken bellow!

Rap it. Clap it.
Moan the Blues.
Strike the drum.
Plug in the amp.
Make a joyful noise!

Listen to the symphonic sea,
And to the operas of whales.
Hear the Earth groan,
And its birds warbling.
The calling cymbals of the flood, 
And the response of echoing hills.
The Universe pulses and roars,
At the ongoing incarnation,
Emanuel, come to judge it,
Upon the scales of grace and mercy.

Sing, sing a song
Sing out loud
Sing out strong
Sing of good things not bad
Sing of happy not sad.

Sing, sing a song
Make it simple to last
Your whole life long
Don't worry that it's not
Good enough for anyone
Else to hear
Just sing, sing a song.

Sing, sing a song
Let the world sing along
Sing of love there could be
Sing for you and for me.

Sing, sing a song
Make it simple to last
Your whole life long
Don't worry that it's not
Good enough for anyone
Else to hear
Just sing, sing a song
