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 chorus is, by far, my favorite song in the entire Baptist Hymnal. I sing it to myself all the time, and have often thought about the way I'd love for a praise and worship team to sing it.
I'd love to start it off acapella, and in the same tune as it is in the hymnal. Then, as the final three words are sung, the tempo picks up and moves into this fast, pop sound. I'd love to hear it with clear bright vocals and harmonies.
