Sing All Creation, Sing to God in Gladness

Man standing before The Light singing praise:   Sing, all creation, sing to God in gladness Joyously serve him, singing hymns of homage. Chanting his praises, come before his presence!. Praise the Almighty! 2. Know that our God is Lord of all the ages. He is our maker; we are all his creatures, people he fashioned, sheep he leads to pasture Praise the Almighty! 3. Enter his temple, ringing out his praises Sing in thanksgiving as you come before him Blessing his bounty, glorify his greatness Praise the Almighty! 4 Great in his goodness is the Lord we worship; Steadfast his kindness, love that knows no ending. Faithful his word is, changeless, everlasting. Praise the Almighty!
