I’ll make musicfor mixed choir (SSAATTB) a cappella
Text: English (Deuteronomy 32:2, Psalm 144:9 and 1 Chronicles 13:8, adapted by Karl Jenkins)
Duration: 4'30''
Difficulty: 3/5

from Karl Jenkins' Motets, for mixed choir a cappella

Lord and Master, I’ll sing a song to you, on the ten-string lyre I’ll make music.
Lord and Master, let your thoughts fall like rain and just like showers on new grass.
We’ll play for you with harps and trumpets, we’ll sing some psalms in praise of you.
Lord and Master, let your words descend like dew and just like droplets on tender leaves.
We’ll play for you with harps and trumpets, we’ll sing some psalms in praise of you.
I’ll make music, I shall make new music, I shall make music for you.
