A New Hymn of Praise - Moloney

This simple hymn of praise was written by Irish Roman Catholic priest and author John V Moloney (1916 – 2014).

Hymn books here it has been published include:

These books are the only known sources of sheet music for the song. The first and third are still in-print and available to purchase.

It was included on a souvenir album,  Pilgrimage To Lourdes, released by DDM Paris  (ref).  Today, the song appears to be mainly used in Ireland.   

It is set to a tune which the Veritas Hymnal called CANTATE DOMINO.  This was written by French Roman Catholic priest and choir-master at Lourdes, Alexandre Lesbordes (1912 - 1969).   It has a 3/4 time signature, and in the key of F, the first few notes of the melody are C A A G F_ GA B B A G_.

Lyrics

Chorus:
A new hymn of praise let us sing to the Lord,
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

This is the day the Lord has made;
Ransom for sin his life he gave.

To save us He was crucified,
Raising our hearts when hope had died.

Bringing him gifts of bread and wine,
We receive back, his life divine.

So live within us, make us one
Stay with us Lord till life is done.

KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY A new hymn of praise let us sing to the Lord,
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

1 This is the day the Lord has made;
Ransom for sin his life he gave.

2 To save us He was crucified,
Raising our hearts when hope had died.

3 Bringing him gifts of bread and wine,
We receive back, his life divine.

4 So live within us, make us one
Stay with us Lord till life is done.
