With praise and elation we greet the Divine
In beauty of love that we just can’t define;
The mystery is wondrous; it captures our soul;
It gives our life purpose; it makes us feel whole.

Praise and sing; praise and sing
Of compassion and care;
Praise and sing; praise and sing;
Let us be well-aware
When love is encountered by you and by me
Our souls can take flight, and our spirits are free.

Compassion inspires us to act in like ways;
When we are forgiven our guilt then decays;
We know that with love we can rise to great heights;
With love as the spark much more good-will ignites.

Chorus

The Sacred within us, as Jesus has shown,
Lights up the desire to let love be known;
His love points the way to have true liberty,
To real inner peace, singing God’s melody.
