Verse:
A
Joy is the theme of my song,
And the beat of my heart,
                     F    G
And that joy is found  in You.
    A
For You showed the power of Your cross,
And Your great saving love,
                   F     G
And my soul woke up   to You.
E                             D
  I heard Your beautiful news,
E                            D
  Grace so amazing, so true.
Chorus:
A                         E/A
  Shout it out, let the people sing,
  F                          G
Something so powerful should shake the whole wide world.
A                         E/A
  Make it loud, make it louder still,
F                            G                          A     F  G
Saviour, we're singing now to celebrate Your beautiful news.
                                                [Last time]
                                   F     G             A
                                      . . .  beautiful news.
Mid section:
Dm                         C          A
  There's a God who came down to save,
Dm                       C           A
  Showed the world His amazing grace.
Dm                         C
  There's a God who came down to save,
  F                   D6    D7
And He calls your name.
A
  Shout it out . . . .

Joy is the theme of my song,
And the beat of my heart,
And that joy is found in You.
For You showed the pow'r of Your cross,
And Your great saving love,
And my soul woke up to You.
I heard Your beautiful news,
Grace so amazing, so true.

Shout it out, let the people sing,
Something so powerful should shake the whole wide world.
Make it loud, make it louder still,
Savior, we're singing now to celebrate Your beautiful news.

There's a God who came down to save,
Showed the world His amazing grace.
There's a God who came down to save,
And He calls your name.
