Returning Praise-Lost song Found


Looking for an old file I chanced upon this song that was lost for years...

Returning Praise

Music fills the universe- it beats in metered time
The harmonies of heaven the seas and land entwine

The changing of the seasons, the dancing sun and moon
They sing of their composer- the One who calls the tune.

Returning praise to the author of our days
Returning praise we will extol His perfect ways
Returning praise as on glory our hearts gaze
We who are receiving grace are returning praise!

So join them with your anthem and follow music’s course
Returning to our author, our pattern and our source.

The cries of every newborn, the silence of the dead
The greening of the forest, the seas by rivers fed

Returning praise to the author of our days
Returning praise we will extol His perfect ways
Returning praise as on glory our hearts gaze
We who are receiving grace are returning praise!

Demand to praise their maker with every rock and hill
Cry out to praise the artist whose purpose they fulfill.

So join them with your anthem and follow music’s course
Returning to our author, our pattern and our source.

Returning praise to the author of our days
Returning praise we will extol His perfect ways
Returning praise as on glory our hearts gaze
We who are receiving grace are returning praise!
