Songs for Worship

Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him.  Praise the LORD with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre. Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.

Psalm 33:1-3 (NIV)

 

   

What Shall I Offer You

Background

This is a liturgical offertory song.  The text, based on the end of Psalm 116, is a bold commitment to honor and praise the name of the Lord who has blessed us so richly.  In the context of Psalm 116, the Lord has blessed the psalm writer by delivering from the grave itself.  The response is a commitment to worship the Lord, to fulfill vows, and to make an offering to the praise of His name.

This is obviously an appropriate liturgical offertory, but it has uses in other contexts as well.  A more traditional version is available with organ accompaniment.

 

Lyrics

What shall I offer You, O Lord
For all Your blessings unto me?
I will offer my heart in thanksgiving
I will lift my voice to praise Your name.

I will raise the cup of salvation
And will call on Your name, O Lord, Most High
I will keep Your word and fulfill my vows
In the presence of all Your people
In the courts of Your house, O Lord
I will offer myself unto You.
