​Everybody Praise The Lord

This song is by Carman and appears on the album The Standard (1993).

There's a growing root of bitterness
In the world today
From the heart of Johannesburg
To the ghettos of L.A.

A swelling violent undertow
Has gripped the soul of man
But an integrated cry of hope
Echoes across the land

I hear my brothers say
Come, everybody, it's time to start
To let the love of Jesus
In your heart

Every tongue and every race
All of God's children seek His face

Praise the Lord, everybody, praise the Lord
Praise the Lord, everybody, praise the Lord

People of promise take your place
Tell of His mercy and His grace
Lift up your voice to the sky
All of God's children testify

Praise the Lord, everybody, praise the Lord
Praise the Lord, everybody, praise the Lord

We worship You because You are Lord and King
We magnify You because You are the One who reigns
We glorify You because You always remain the same

We worship You because You are Lord and King
We magnify You because You are the One who reigns
We glorify You because You always remain the same

Praise the Lord, everybody, praise the Lord
Praise the Lord, everybody, praise the Lord

We got no time for hit and miss
The world is full of prejudice
You know we just ain't down with this, so come on now
Everybody praise the Lord

He inhabits our praises
Sin He erases
He wants to amaze us, so say this
Everybody praise the Lord

Praise the Lord, everybody, praise the Lord

Everybody, praise the Lord
