O Glorious Lord
We bring to you the gift of voice
As you to us the gift of life
Through tears of joy
We radiate in your likeness
As you bless us with your grace
We are a wellspring of flutes and strings
You rain down upon us the gift of music
We are a community of singers
Living out our dream
Awakened by the energy of old and new
Celebrating the chance to sing with the angels
And you ready to receive us

Hallelujah, days and nights
Hallelujah, dusk to dawn
Hallelujah, now and forever
