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.


There is life for a look at the Crucified One

The Composed Song

1. Come listen now dear friend whose deeds ‘r even righteous

Cease thou not to do work of righteousness

Because God also is seeing even all of thine works

Cease thou not to do work of righteousness

Refrain:

It’s true, it’s very true

It is very true that there’s reward for righteous

‘Cause God even judgeth on the earth


2. Come listen now dear friend whose deeds ‘r even righteous

Friends, brethren and siblings may even forsake thee

‘Cause even of the works you are doing in righteousness

Cease thou not to do works of righteousness

Refrain:


3. Come listen now dear friend whose deeds ‘r even righteous

Yea God also delighted in thee

Because thou art the one who’s fulfilling his wills

Cease thou not to do works of righteousness

Refrain


4. Come listen now dear friend whose deeds ‘r even righteous

Mingle thou not never with evil ones

Yea to also partake even in their wickedness

Mingle thou not never with evil ones

Refrain


5. Come listen now dear friend whose deeds ‘r even righteous

God’s promise may tarry for a while

But always’ remember, promise may tarry for a while

Joy ‘ld appear in the morning

Refrain


6. Come listen now dear friend whose deeds ‘r even righteous

Cease thou not to do work of righteousness

Endure and have faith day of your joy is nigh

That thou ‘ll be rewarded for your works

Refrain
