I Love You Lord and I Lift my Voice

Person with hands raised in prayer before the sunrise - I love you, Lord, and I lift my voice  To worship You oh, my soul, rejoice!  Take joy my King in what You hear  Let it be a sweet, sweet sound in Your ear.This short praise chorus about love of God was written by American Christian writer and musician Laurie Klein.

It was first published in 1978 by House of Mercy Music.  Since then it has been covered by a very wide range of artists, and been used as a worship song in churches of many different denominations.

With meter 9.9.8.10, the tune is sometimes also called I LOVE YOU LORD.   It has a 4/4 time signature. In the key of G, the first few notes are D G GG DG A B B_, with accompanying chords D / G / F / D7 / G.

It can be extended using other verbs like trust and serve, if required - although these are not in the published original version.
