61806 |December 9, 2019

Intro

Some say today’s youth are corrupt, decadent;

they give parents headaches and annoy teachers.

Chorus

We young ones who believe and follow God,

shine bright, for we seek truth and we practice God’s words.

We young ones are the new generation.

We’re loved and blessed by God, we are so joyous.

We’re loved and blessed by God, we are so joyous.

Verse 1

We no longer chase the latest trends

or the glamour the nightclubs offer,

no longer strive for fame and fortune

or compete over flesh’s pleasures.

We’re not troubled by money, hooked to games,

don’t chase silly romance or live in lust.

We do not seek false knowledge, willful no more.

We’ve heard God’s voice, returned before God.

Chorus

We young ones who believe and follow God,

shine bright, for we seek truth and we practice God’s words.

We young ones are the new generation.

We’re loved and blessed by God, we are so joyous.

We’re loved and blessed by God, we are so joyous.

Verse 2

The truth of God’s words has cleared our minds,

we know what’s lovely, ugly, good, and corrupt.

His words cleanse us, keep us from evil.

Taking His truth, we’re on the right path.

Daily we read God’s words, share the truth,

we’re now living the life of the church.

God’s judgment is with us as we grow,

as are dealing and pruning of God’s words.

Bridge 1

We’ve shed tears, had grief, failures, and falls,

but God’s words enlighten us timely.

Thanks to the light of the word of God,

we understand the truth and now we’re free.

Chorus

We young ones who believe and follow God,

shine bright, for we seek truth and we practice God’s words.

We young ones are the new generation.

We’re loved and blessed by God, we are so joyous.

We’re loved and blessed by God, we are so joyous.

Verse 3

We all praise God with cheers and laughter,

we’re happy living, talking with God.

Trying to be honest, loved by God,

we are guileless, vibrant, untroubled.

We all proclaim, testify to God.

Oh! Yes, our hearts are happy and free.

We’ve seen God face to face, felt His love.

Truth is precious, gives our lives new purpose.

Chorus

We young ones who believe and follow God,

shine bright, for we seek truth and we practice God’s words.

We young ones are the new generation.

We’re loved and blessed by God, we are so joyous.

We’re loved and blessed by God, we are so joyous.

Bridge 2

Oh! Yes, thanks be to Almighty God,

who has given us the truth, the way, and life.

None is more lovely than Almighty God;

we, the young ones, shall always praise Him!

Chorus

We young ones who believe and follow God,

shine bright, for we seek truth and we practice God’s words.

We young ones are the new generation.

We’re loved and blessed by God, we are so joyous.

We’re loved and blessed by God, we are so joyous.
