I came downstairs one morning to find that my elder daughter, Fiona (then in her early teens), had spontaneously written out some words for a praise song, and I discovered she also had a melody in mind. It seemed to me that it could be quite good for family worship with a Caribbean-style feel, so we worked on it together. This was the result.

Words (by Fiona and Michael Lehr)

Everybody, praise the Lord, praise the Lord!
Everybody, praise the Lord, praise the Lord!

For he is God Almighty;
He is the King of heav'n and earth.

Everybody, praise the Lord, praise the Lord!

He sent his Son to save us,
To free us from the power of sin.

Everybody, praise the Lord, praise the Lord!

When Jesus rose victorious,
He conquered death for evermore.

Everybody, praise the Lord, praise the Lord!

And now he sends his Spirit,
To guide our lives, inflame our hearts.

Everybody, praise the Lord, praise the Lord!

To Father, Son and Spirit
We lift our hearts in hymns of praise.

Everybody, praise the Lord, praise the Lord!
Everybody, praise the Lord, praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord!
