A song of praise...

As I was driving to have coffee with a friend this morning, I felt the rock I have been carrying in my pocket to remind me to praise God. So I began to sing a song of praise... not one I have ever heard before, but one that just came to me as I drove. I'm going to post it here, so I don't forget it. I've 'been given' songs before, but I never remember them a few days later. (I hope I remember the tune, too, as I liked it, but if not, I guess I'll just make another up!) Here it is... (Don't judge it too harshly, as I don't claim to be a poet or a lyricist!)

If I do not praise Him,
If no praise falls from my lips,
If no Hallelujahs
Travel from my heart to His...

The hills and the rocks will cry out!
The mountains and valleys will sing;
Shout 'Hallelujahs' to the King!
If I do not praise Him.

If I do not praise Him,
If my heart turns from His grace;
If my lips are silent
When I look upon His face...

The grass in the field will sing praises!
The trees on the hills clap their hands!
The mountains will shout out glad tidings,
If I do not praise Him.
