Praise the living God who sings,
pulsing through created things,
harmonizing nature’s arts,
voicing hope in human hearts!
God’s eternal anthem rings!
Tell the nations God still sings!
Christ was born and angels sang
till the very heavens rang!
Jesus, God’s own song on earth,
sang of pardon, love, rebirth.
Christ who rose gives life new wings!
Easter people, God still sings!
Rise to sing where there is wrong:
“Truth and justice have a song.
Let the burdened find release;
grant them freedom, hope and peace!”
Seek the joy that justice brings!
Share the message God still sings!
Celebrate creation’s God!
Magnify redemption’s Lord!
Praise the Spirit’s power to bring
understanding as we sing!
Wake the woodwinds, pipes and strings!
Join the anthem God still sings!

David A. Robb's text celebrates the praise of God in all times and places. Fedak's original music is festive and joyful, but cast in a minor mode--giving it the flavor of a traditional carol.
