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.

O Lord of heaven and earth and sea

The Composed Song

1. Lord its one thing that I loved

Even all the days of my life

Yea the habitation of thy house

Where thine honor dwell

2. It is one thing that I desire

That thing will I even pursue

That I may dwell in the Lord’s house

Where thine honor dwell

3. ‘Cause if ‘am living in his house

In time of trouble he ‘ll hide me

Even within his pavilion

Where thine honor dwell

4. He ‘ll set me up even on high

He will place me upon a rock

For I dwelleth even in his house

Where thine honor dwell

5. And now my head ‘ll be lifted up

Above the enemies that surround me

Sacrifice of joy an’ gladness I ‘ll offer

Where thine honor dwell

6. Oh Lord I ‘ll even extoll Thee

For my foes don’t rejoice over me

For I dwelleth even in his house

Where thine honor dwell

7. Thou has turned my mourning into dancing

My sackcloth you ‘ve even put off

Thou has girded me even with gladness

Where thine honor dwell

8. You should praise the Lord even with harp

And with instrument of ten strings

All of you living in his house

Where thine honor dwell

9. You should sing new song unto the Lord

Play skillfully with a loud noise

All of you who are his people

Where thine honor dwell
