New lyrics to the tune of Auld Lang Syne, from the album Joy Has Dawned by Kings Kaleidoscope:

Should nothing of our efforts stand
No legacy survive
Unless the Lord does raise the house
In vain its builders strive

To you who boast tomorrow’s gain
Tell me what is your life
A mist that vanishes at dawn
All glory be to Christ!

All glory be to Christ our king!
All glory be to Christ!
His rule and reign will ever sing,
All glory be to Christ!

His will be done
His kingdom come
On earth as is above
Who is Himself our daily bread
Praise Him the Lord of love

Let living water satisfy
The thirsty without price
We’ll take a cup of kindness yet
All glory be to Christ!

All glory be to Christ our king!
All glory be to Christ!
His rule and reign will ever sing,
All glory be to Christ!

When on the day the great I Am
The faithful and the true
The Lamb who was for sinners slain
Is making all things new.

Behold our God shall live with us
And be our steadfast light
And we shall ere his people be
All glory be to Christ!

All glory be to Christ our king!
All glory be to Christ!
His rule and reign will ever sing,
All glory be to Christ!

    Love it

  2. Shayne McAllister says:

    I love how this captures both a new hymn lyric, but also the original poetry style of Robert Burns, one of my favorite poets. If the authors and singers are trying to be missional to scottish Americans, it works.

  3. Love them! Go check out the rest of their music on Bandcamp or iTunes, their covers of How Deep the Father’s Love, Come Thou Fount, Jesus Paid It All, In Christ Alone, etc. are amazing. Glory be to God for this beautiful marriage of doctrine and music.

  4. Gary Ware says:

    It’s a good song to sing, as well.

  5. I typed out a congregational friendly tab of this: http://tmblr.co/ZXAMdwaXIa1J

    Less than three!
