Just a little something I wanted to share.

Way back in the Bible, the Hebrew language says
that we were taught that we could praise the Lord in seven ways.
Seven great expressions, seven different flows,
seven ways to worship God and this is how it goes:  

1. Number one is towdah (towdah), it’s the sacrifice.
Praising God in spite the fact your world is in a vice.
It’s praise that pushes through the wall of all adversity;
an offering that flows to heaven in our time of need.
Somebody say mind (mind), Praise the Lord (praise the Lord).
Say body (body), Praise the Lord (praise the Lord).
Spirit (spirit), Praise the Lord (praise the Lord).  

2. Number two’s yadah (yadah), that means to lift your hands
in response to what the Lord has done throughout the land;
an outward sign of what’s inside for all the world to see;
a demonstration of our love so come praise the Lord with me.
Can you wave one hand and say praise the Lord? (Praise the Lord)
Can you wave both hands and say praise the Lord? (Praise the Lord)
Now can you clap those hands and say praise the Lord? (Praise the Lord)  

3. Number three is barouch (barouch), that simply means to bow
in the awesome presence of the Lord and all His pow‘r.
Just be overwhelmed ‘cause you hardly can believe
that you’ve been given favor by His Holy Majesty.
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord!  

4. All right now, here’s the one you’ve been waiting for, here it is.
This fourth one is shabach (shabach)! It is what we call the shout.
It’s praise that’s given way before the answer comes about;
a public testimony that drowns out all the noise
of whiners and complainers as the saints all lift their voice.
If you believe that God’s alive today, shout yeah! (yeah!)
If you believe that He’s worthy of our praise, shout yeah! (Yeah!)
If you believe the answer’s on the way, shout yeah! (Yeah)  

5. Number five is zamar (zamar), this one you’ll like for sure.
It’s playing any instument that glorifies the Lord.
Instruments that blast, instruments that strum ba dum dum dum,
instruments that keep the beat, so I’ll praise Him on my drum, oh, oh, bada pow!  

6. Six we call halell (halell), that means to rave and boast
and praise the Lord in such a way that gets you on your toes.
Wait a minute, wait a minute.
What?
Hey now what did you say?
It’s beyond just clappin’ hands.
But best of all, this is the one that makes you wanna dance.  

7. Finally tehillah (tehillah), seven is the best.
It’s the one that is the combination of the rest.
It’s singing and it’s shouting, it’s dancing and it’s more.
It’s wild, it’s fun so ev‘ryone rejoice before the Lord!

I Say: Praise the Lord, praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord!
Hey! I said: Praise the Lord, praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord!

Yes sir, there are seven ways to call down heaven.
Yes sir, there are seven ways.
Yes sir, there are seven ways to call down heaven.
Seven ways we can praise, ev‘ryone praise the Lord!
