Singing and composing hymns and other songs have been part of my life since my teenage days

Composer’s Foreword

I am not good in notes, but from the local church trainings while in choir, I have come around with this hymn using another hymn. If you know the hymn beneath, then you can join me to sing this song unto the Lord.

The Composed Song

1. May God’s peace be on you

The Israelites of God

God’s mercy ‘ll rest on you

The new people of God

You are children of the Most High

Redeemed an’ washed by His blood

Thou art special before God

Oh thou spiritua’ Israel


2. May God’s peace be on you

The pursuers of peace

Thou art trodding even on

The paths of righteousness

For even without holiness

No one will see the Lord

Oh Thou spiritual Israel

Pursue God’s holiness


3. May God’s peace be on you

The Israelites of God

Thou who hast repented of

Thine sins and turned from them

Oh thou who hath forsaken

The devil and its works

And you have even cleave to

The Holy One of Jacob


4. May God’s peace be on you

The Israelites of God

Thou who art searching the scriptures

Even morn’ and night

And thou art doing the works

That’s meet for righteousness

By doing these you ‘re ‘ven

Called God’s disciples indeed


5. May God’s peace be on you

The Israelites of God

His mercy and his goodness

Shall ever follow thee

As long as thou shalt abide

Even on the planet earth

May you continue to see

The goodness of the Lord
