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.


My Soul Give Praise To The Lord

Note

This is not the tune used for the composition.

The Composed Song

1. Things are not as they ought even to be

And everyone has gone to their own ways

‘Cause judgment ‘re not executed in time

The heart of men ‘re established in evil

Refrain/Chorus

Oh Lord, now is even the time

For thee to do thine own work

‘Cause of many people in the world

For they ‘ve made void even thy own law.


2. When thou oh Lord hath hidden thy face

From my body and even my work

The mouth of my enemies mock me

And they ask where resideth my God

Refrain/Chorus


3. When thou Lord do not arise in time

Several enemies ‘ve surrounded me

And they said that they will conquer me

As they have done for unbelievers

Refrain/Chorus


4. And they are comparing you with idols

That hath eyes but that they cannot see

That hath ears but they can’t even hear

Legs have they but they can’t even walk

Refrain/Chorus


5. And those who I even trusted on

Yea, those people eating bread with me

They are in agreement against me

Their heels have they lifted up against me

Refrain/Chorus


6. Please dear Lord have thou mercy on me

Raise me up from my present position

And by this I will even know that

Thou hath shown thine mercy upon me

Refrain/Chorus


7. Turn for me my mourning into dancing

Thou should even put off my sackcloth

Thou should come and gird me with gladness

That my glory may sing praise to Thee

Refrain/Chorus
