Shout For Joy - Gary Valenciano

When I was still a teacher at the University, I helped organize a youth group. The members of that youth group are college students from different departments in the University (here in our Province, North of Manila). We once volunteered to present a dance number in front of a group of single professionals all over Luzon (one of the three isaland groups that composes the Philippine Archipelago). They had a summer sportsfest back then.

This is the song that we used as a dance piece. Me and my cousin, also my co-teacher in that University danced together with the college students who were mostly in their teens. It was fun especially the guest sportsfest players appreciated our performance.

I always remember this because it was the first time I danced in front of a lot of people (around 500 in attendance)... and probably my last because I am not a dancer. I am more of a singer but I am trying to practice my body coordination when making a dance step. I still dance but only within family limits.

This is the song that would always remind me that I danced, did it at least once. I really hate it when I am asked to dance... but it's fun, it's a way of losing fat (that's my how-to-reduce-weight advice).

So here is the song:

LYRICS OF THE SONG SHOUT FOR JOY (Gary V.)

(Let me hear you Shout!!)

How do I begin to tell you 'bout this friend, Who's like no other
Ever since the day He walked into my life
He's been more than a brother
And everyday and every minute, there's a shower of love I feel
Something I used to just imagine, I tell you know it's all for real.
That's why I

Shout for joy, sing His praises
Lift my voice unto the Lord
Shout for joy, sing His praises
Lift my voice unto the Lord

Now in case you've forgotten, it's a free gift you know
It's been an open invitation
For every man or woman, every boy or girl, people from every nation
Looking up unto the heavens, praising God for what he's done

I can hear the chorus singing, singing in their own native tongue
You gotta

Shout for joy, sing His praises
Lift my voice unto the Lord
Shout for joy, sing His praises
Lift my voice unto the Lord
(You gotta) Tell him all about it

(There He is by the door of your heart)
(Open up and make a brand new start)
Like He said, when you seek you shall find Him
(Think again if you wanna refuse)
(Everything to gain and nothing to lose)
I believe you know just what I mean

RAP
Hey, It's the truth, I'm telling you it's real
It's something I believe the world should feel
I think we know, we know all the facts
There's only One who wanna to put us back on the right track
People in the West, East, North, and South
People who think I'm just running my mouth
It ain't gonna work, I'm never gonna give it up
Telling people what they should definitely know about

(There He is by the door of your heart)
(Open up and make a brand new start)
Like He said, when you seek you shall find Him
Think again if you wanna refuse
Everything to gain and nothing to lose
I can tell you all about Him
But all you gotta do is say Jesus is lord you know his right for you
