Lyrics

Simple Song (from MASS)
Music and Lyrics by Leonard Bernstein

Sing God a simple song, Lauda, Laudē
Make it up as you go along, Lauda, Laudē
Sing like you like to sing.

God loves all simple things

For God is the simplest of all
For God is the simplest of all.
I will sing the Lord a new song
To praise Him

To bless Him
To bless the Lord.
I will sing His praises while I live

All of my days.

Blessed is the man who loves the Lord
Blessed is the man who praises Him.
Lauda, Lauda, Laudē
And walks in His ways.

I will lift up my eyes

To the hills from whence comes my help.
I will lift up my voice to the Lord
Singing Lauda, Laudē.

For the Lord is my shade

Is the shade upon my right hand

And the sun shall not smite me by day
Nor the moon by night.

Blessed is the man who loves the Lord
Lauda, Lauda, Laudē
And walks in His ways.

Lauda, Lauda, Laudē

Lauda, Lauda di da di day

All of my days.
