Go Ahead And Shout

Lyrics

Print-Friendly Lyrics

People by the thousands at a football game
Lay aside their pride and dignity
They stomp and cheer and clap their hands so unashamed
When the home team scores a big TD
Now, I ain’t knockin’ football you must understand
But one thing really strange occurs to me
In church on Sunday morning, we are given subtle warning
That we’re all to be as quiet as can be

There’s nothin’ really wrong with saying. “Praise the Lord”
When you feel the Spirit surgin’ through ya
And when you get excited about His Holy Word
With loving hands raise to the air
Say, “Hallelujah”
It’s written in the Bible that the Lord will shout
When He comes to catch His bride away
So if you feel like shouting
But you won’t let go for doubting
Go ahead and shout, you won’t scare God away

People by the millions ‘round the throne of God
Lay aside the struggles of this earth
Having gained an entrance in to Gloryland
Through a wondrous process called rebirth
Now if you’re goin’ be in that happy throng
But you’re afraid to praise the Lord down here
In Heaven, you will praise Him
But the noise will never faze Him
So you might as well get started while you’re here

There’s nothin’ really wrong with saying, “Praise the Lord”
When you feel the Spirit surgin’ through ya
And when you get excited about His Holy Word
With loving hands raise to the air
Say, “Hallelujah, Hallelujah”
It’s written in the Bible
That the Lord will shout
When He’s come to catch His bride away
So if you feel like shouting
But you won’t let go for doubting
Go ahead and shout, you won’t scare God away

Go ahead and shout, you won’t scare God away
