What else can I do,
a weak old man,
but sing hymns of joy to you God?
If I were a magpie,
I would do it the magpie’s way.
If I were a brolga,
I would do it with elegant dance.
But I am a thinker,
so I will praise God
not just with my lips
but with mind and heart and soul.
This is my call,
This is my gift and service.
I will praise you Father till the end.
I will not desert my post of praise,
so long as I am allowed to be here.
Lord Jesus, send your Holy Spirit so others join me
in this song of joy to You!
