2009 Sing to Jehovah Lyrics--PDF----by request!
Here's my favorite: We have God, the Holy Spirit, and Jesus Christ. Oh wait. Jesus is out and has been replaced by "the slave", God's steward.
011 Making Jehovah’s Heart Glad
1. Great God, we’ve vowed to do your will;
In wisdom your work we’ll fulfill.
For then we know we’ll have a part
In making glad your loving heart.
2. Your slave, your steward here on earth,
Proclaims your greatness and your worth,
Feeds us with nourishment when due,
Thus strengthens us your will to do.
3. Impart to us your active force,
That we may keep a faithful course
And bring forth fruitage to your praise
And thus make glad your heart always.
Advertise, Advertise, Advertise the Slave and their Kingdom!
I'm thinking this would be a great new catchphrase for the Dubs.
Did jesus get a mention, anywhere? They complain about jehovah supposedly getting taken out. They are doing that to jesus, in their wrtings.
I can't find the song in there that ends with.
'... And I reveal my inner-most self.'
"Christ’s brothers are chosen and called. God gives them their own new birth. This bride class will share in the Kingdom And bring Paradise to this earth.
(CHORUS)Praise Jah for his holy Anointed."
I agree with Satanus after skimming the songs. Not much Jesus, not much about what He has done for us, not much good news. TONS of stuff about what YOU MUST DO, SHOULD DO, to get blessings, rewards, etc. Even where it mentions "Ransom" or "Forgiveness of sins", it doesn't go in depth about what this means, etc. It's almost like just thrown in there to make it sound somewhat "Christian." It reminds me more of songs someone would sing who has joined a military organization, songs to hype you up, and keep you going. I think the hymnody of a group really does reveal a lot!
I hope it's ok, but as a contrast, i wanted to post one of my favorite hymns. It's become popular lately in Contemporary Christian music, by various groups. It's called Before The Throne of God Above by Charitie Bancroft (a contemporary of Russell actually, LOL) I just love it, because it is pure Gospel. It's all about Christ, and His work for us, and its benefits! Nothing about us, how dedicated we are, should be ,etc. (some nice renditions of it are on YouTube. THe music is beautiful also.)
Before the throne of God above
I have a strong, a perfect plea:
A great High Priest, whose name is Love,
Who ever lives and pleads for me.
My name is graven on his hands,
My name is written on his heart;
I know that while in heaven he stands
No tongue can bid me thence depart
No tongue can bid me thence depart.
When Satan tempts me to despair,
And tells me of the guilt within,
Upward I look, and see him there
Who made an end of all my sin.
Because a sinless Savior died,
My sinful soul is counted free;
For God, the Just, is satisfied
To look on Him and pardon me
To look on Him and pardon me
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Praise the One,
Risen Son of God!
Behold him there, the risen Lamb
My perfect, spotless righteousness,
The great unchangeable I am,
The King of glory and of grace!
One in himself, I cannot die
My soul is purchased by his blood
My life is hid with Christ on high,
With Christ, my Savior and my God
With Christ, my Savior and my God
Stay awake stand firm and grow mighty.....ever loyal to the end!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
Is this for real? I can't believe it! Look at some of the lyrics about the "faithful slave"! This cult is just becoming more and more cultish. Where the hell in the Bible did any apostle or person mention that they need to follow and obey such a "faithful slave" on earth?? Nowhere!
From song 43:
2. Stay awake, and keep your senses,
Always ready to obey.
Stay alert to Christ’s direction
Through his faithful slave today.
Heed the counsel of the older men,
Who protect his sheep and truth defend.
OMG OMG not only are there a bunch of new songs but the lyrics for the old songs have been totally changed sometimes the words are completly difernt and several times they just completly take out a whole verse. looks like most if not all have reduced down to 2 or 3 verses max.
I can just see it now the songs are going to be all buchered up with one word changes here and there... all the older ones are going to be so confused cause the melody might still be the same but BAM the words are all funky now.
oh and listening to the new piano music.. some of the old songs have changed tempo or on a difernt key or have a slight note change thats gonna throw everyone off.
Not sure if I want to or
Ah, the new "Sing to Jiggyboo" book and soundtrack.
My question is... if you sing the OLD praises to Jehovah, is he gonna get pissed off because it's old light? Or will he still appreciate that you are praising him? If that's the case, then why have the old songs been retired? Why don't they just add to the praises so there's more selection?
It really doesn't make sense that they chopped the praises down to nearly HALF of what they were. Well, it does if you're thinking about cost-cutting
They entirely changed verse 2 of the old standby "We're Jehovah's Witnesses". Now it reads:
2. Proudly we declare God’s name,
Bearing witness to his fame.
News about his Kingdom,
Boldly we proclaim.
Others thus may come to see
Truth from God that sets them free.
As they grow strong, their voices they’ll raise,
Joining with us to sing his praise.
It used to be:
"You’re my witnesses," God said, "Other Gods you need not dread.
I am God Jehovah, Sovereign Lord and Head.I both saved and showed to you When no other gods you knew.
Keep publishing my name near and far; Prove that my witnesses you are."
011 Making Jehovah's Heart Glad
UR - Interesting that they have sacrificed the verse about not turning from God's side, proving the Tempter a liar and delighting in God's principles (hello! isn't that where they see the Proverbs text as the song's theme?) in favor of keeping the verse about the "slave." It shows where their priorities lie.
Thanks for posting the lyrics. Interesting that Song 100 in the old book called "Laud Jehovah Our God" is now called "Praise Jehovah Our God" the word Laud must have been iffy to some. In any case,i can't wait to use these. by the way,what are the completely new songs? most of these sound the same,based on the mp3's i downloaded. any help would be appreciated.
I was at my parents a few weeks back and they were talking about the new songs. They were saying that most of the R&F JW's are not overly thrilled with the new songs but like all good dubs they will follow the company line. What is don't get is I can understand why they may change the words as per "new light" but they were saying they also have changed the melody which makes them harder to sing to. What is with that? Maybe they want to get rid of the old Franz and company era.
