Sometimes when I'm feeling down
And the devil comes around
I start to make a joyful sound
That he cannot ignore
It's a heavenly idea
Guaranteed to make him flee-yah
Perfect panacea
Seven ways to praise the Lord

Todah - sacrifice of praise
Yadah - let your hands be raised
Barouch - with a quiet voice
Hallel - let your soul rejoice
Zamar - play for Him a song
Tehillah - you can sing along
Shabach - shout for joy!
That's seven ways to praise the Lord

Congregation gone to sleep
Sermon must have been too deep
Pitiful sight, but at least
They're all in one accord
Sunday services are very
Much like cemetery
Someone ought to tell them
Seven ways to praise the Lord
(Instrumental solo)

Calypso Chorus itemizes
What the scriptures emphisizes
Seven holy exercises
That magnify the Lord
So practice each one faithfully
And very soon you're sure to see
That you have found a hundred
Brand-new ways to praise the Lord!
(Repeat Chorus 2x In Bb to coda)

Coda: That's seven ways to praise the Lord
