293 The Universe and Expanse Is Praising God
1. Ay … songs are many and dances are graceful; the universe and the ends of the earth become a seething sea. Ay … the heaven is new and the earth is new. The vast expanse of the universe is full of praising; we shout and leap for joy. Mountains join mountains and waters join waters, all brothers and sisters are heart to heart. We praise God unceasingly. Created beings love God, coming joyfully before His throne to worship together. God has in Zion revealed to the universe His righteousness and holiness. All God’s people are beaming with joy, praising God unceasingly. Hey hey hey hey hey, hey hey hey hey hey. Hey hey hey hey hey, hey hey hey hey hey.
2. Ay … to love God, we must offer up a true heart. Sing and dance to praise Almighty God. Ay … the praising voice rends the skies. Let us, male and female, old and young, catch up together. You offer songs and I offer dances, you sing and I cooperate. Shamed is the devil—the great red dragon; glorified is the name of the almighty true God. We all have seen from His work God’s righteous disposition. Almighty God is a righteous God. All God’s people have seen His glorious countenance. We all pursue to love and satisfy God, willing to be faithful to Him forever. Hey hey hey hey hey, hey hey hey hey hey. Hey hey hey hey hey, hey hey hey hey hey.
3. Ay … mountains are rejoicing and waters are laughing, all nations and all peoples are laughing happily. What a new look! Ay … the new heaven, new earth, and new kingdom! We dance and sing new songs for God; we’re so joyful! The most beautiful songs are sung to God, the most graceful dances are presented to God. A sincere heart is held up to God, a true heart is offered up to God. All God’s people and all things will praise Him forever without ceasing. Ay! Oh! Zion is so glorious! God’s dwelling place glows with rays of light. Its glory shines throughout the entire universe. Almighty God wears a smile, and sits on the throne watching the new look of the entire universe. Hey!
