Thatís What Aussie Kids

are Praising You For!

(Inspired by Job 40)

V 1. You made Australia so ancient and vast

Sprinkled it liberally with diamonds and pearls

From the beginning and until the very last

You are Father of mums and dads, boys and girls

You created the earth

Yet had a hand in my birth

Thatís what Aussie kids are praising you for

 

V 2. You put the song in the voice of the whale

You count every grain of sand in the sea

You make the sharks and prawns each to their scale

You made my parents and you helped them make me

You put the blood in my flesh

Cause me to bring out my best

Thatís what Aussie kids are praising you for

 

Ch. Aussie kids for Jesus

Father God and Holy Spirit

Aussie kids for Jesus

In a great southern land of worship

 

V 3. You make the pineapples and sugar cane grow

You put the flowers, fruit and leaves on the trees

You put the colours in every rainbow

You put the good in personalities

You cause the songbirds to sing

Give the bellbird itís ring

Thatís what Aussie kids are praising you for

 

Ch

 

Br. For the diversity

People, ecology

We praise you LordÖ Hand it all back to you

 

V 4. You make the platypus oh so different

You give the joey a pouch in its mummy

You love koalas as much as we children

And frilled necked lizards who run so funny

You give me voice to give praise

And feet to walk in your ways

Thatís what Aussie kids are praising you for

 

Ch

 

V 5. You make the crocodile so strong and agile

You made our land to stand flooding and droughts

You made us children to run, play and smile

And bring you joy in our laughter and shouts

We want Australia for you

Do with it what you will do

Thatís what Aussie kids are praising you for

 

Ch (plus)

 

We want Australia for you

Do with it what you will do

Thatís what Aussie kids are praising you for

Thatís what Aussie kids are praising you for
