Lyrics:
1.  With glad, exuberant carolings,
    With hymns and psalms of praise,
    Give thanks through Christ for everything,
    Give thanks to God always!
    Give thanks through Christ for everything,
    Give thanks to God always!

2.  Through songful worship, know that truth
    Bare words cannot enfold.
    In raptured melodies of prayer
    Your God behold, behold!
    In raptured melodies of prayer
    Your God behold, behold!

3.  Through music blend the potencies
    Of mind and heart and soul
    And with their fusioned energies
    Your God extol, extol!
    And with their fusioned energies
    Your God extol, extol!

4.  O brim the barreled lungs with joy
    And empty out this song:
    "Our breath, our pulse, our lives, our gifts
    To Christ the Lord belong!
    Our breath, our pulse, our lives, our gifts
    To Christ the Lord belong!"

5.  By day, by night, at work, at prayer,
    Through storms and times of calm
    Let all your deeds and words compose
    A constant, living psalm!
    Let all your deeds and words compose
    A constant, living psalm!
