ABOUT THE INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC

This Sunday our prelude is the contemporary choral piece “Let Everything That Hath Breath by living composer Jeffery L. Ames (b. 1969).   It is sung by several members of St. Nicholas with Jane Ducott as soloist.  A number of the lyrics are repeated, so if you catch on, please join in and sing with us or at least clap your hands.

 

LET EVERYTHING THAT HATH BREATH

Sing unto the Lord a new song.  Sing unto the Lord all the earth.  Declare His glory among the nations.

Let everything that hath breath, everything that hath breath, let everything that hath breath praise the Lord.

(repeat this section)

 

Magnify the Lord with me and exalt His name together.  Hallelujah, bless His name for He’s worthy to be praised.

Clap your hands all ye people.  Shout with a voice of triumph for the mighty Lord is great and greatly to be praised!

Let everything that hath breath, everything that hath breath, let everything that hath breath praise the Lord!

 

Come on and praise the Lord.  Let’s all praise His name.  Come on and praise the Lord.  Let’s praise His name.

Praise him with the timbrel, praise Him with the dance.  Stand up on your feet and just lift up holy hands.

Sing “Hallelujah”, praise His holy name for the Lord is worthy to be praised!

 

Let’s praise the Lord.  Let’s praise the Lord.  Let’s praise the Lord.  Let’s praise the Lord.

Let’s praise the Lord.  Let’s praise the Lord.  Let’s praise the Lord.  Let’s praise the Lord.

Let everything that hath breath, everything that hath breath, let everything that hath breath praise the Lord!

You oughta, you oughta praise Him!

 

The offertory is “Clair de Lune” by French composer

Claude Debussy (1862-1918 A.D.).  The postlude is “How Great Thou Art”.  This song was originally composed in 1885-86 in Sweden by Rev. Carl Robert.  This piece was named “O Store Gud” (O Great God).  In 1948, the lyrics were translated into English.  It was sung during the 1957 Billy Graham crusade in Madison Square Garden and made a well-known gospel standard by singer George Beverly Shea.                 Terry Foster, Church Musician
