This might be what you are looking for

I CAME TO PRAISE THE LORD

CHORUS :
I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU CAME TO DO
BUT I CAME TO PRAISE THE LORD
I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU CAME TO DO
BUT I CAME TO PRAISE THE LORD
I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU CAME TO DO
BUT I CAME TO PRAISE THE LORD
ALLELUIA ALLELE ALLELUIA

I JUST CAME FROM A DEAR OLD SAINT
AND SHE WAS PRAISING THE LORD
I JUST CAME FROM A DEAR OLD SAINT
AND SHE WAS PRAISING THE LORD
I JUST CAME FROM A DEAR OLD SAINT
AND SHE WAS PRAISING THE LORD
ALLELUIA ALLELUIA ALLELUIA

I JUST CAME FROM A CHURCH ON FIRE
AND THEY WERE PRAISING THE LORD
I JUST CAME FROM A CHURCH ON FIRE
AND THEY WERE PRAISING THE LORD
I JUST CAME FROM A CHURCH ON FIRE
AND THEY WERE PRAISING THE LORD
ALLELUIA ALLELUIA ALLELUIA

YOU CAN SIT AROUND AND COMPLAIN
BUT I CAME TO PRAISE THE LORD
YOU CAN SIT AROUND AND CRITICIZE ALL THE SAINTS
BUT I CAME TO PRAISE THE LORD
YOU CAN WALK AROUND WITH YOUR NOISE IN THE AIR
AND EVEN CRITICIZE THE WAY I WEAR MY HAIR
I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU CAME TO DO
BUT I CAME TO PRAISE THE LORD

I just came to praise the Lord
I just came to praise the Lord
I just came to praise His Name
I just came to praise the Lord

He came into my life
One very special day
He came into my heart
To show me a better way
He said he'd never depart
and this is why I say
I just came to praise the Lord

I just came to praise the Lord
you've been so good to me
I just came to praise the Lord
Because you set me free
I just came to praise His Holy Name
I just came to praise The Lord
I praise The Lord

To answer your question Bishop Mitlon Hollins (my husband) wrote the original I Don't Know What You ComeTo Do in 1965. He and I were the original Biblical Gospel Singers on Peackock Songbird recording label. We were the original singers/songwriters and I played and arranged the music on All of the songs. The group consisted of my brother in law (Charlie Simmons) Robert Brown, my husband Milton Hollins and myself. Later my sister Mary Frances joined the group. The group split after the hit song sold over 1million copies. My brother in law took the name Bilblicals and formed a different group and re-recorded the song on MCA. My husband and I formed a different group named The Helen Hollins Singers, we also recorded the song. Since that time everyone from Tony ToniTone (House Party II), BeBe Winans, The Walls Group and so many others have recorded the song. There are derivative versions of the song recorded by Tye Tribbett, Demetria Haddon
and more.
Most people do not realize that there is a verse to the song before the hook because everyone remembers the hook and vamp.The original music and lyrics can be found under Morton Morris sheet music titled I Come To Praise Him words and music by M.Hollins.
VERSE
Sing to the Lord a brand new song
Let your voices ring
Clap your hands All ye people
Come on ! Let's praise His Name

HOOK
I come to praise his name
His name

I come to clap my hands
My hands
I come to stomp my feet
My feet
I come to shout for joy
For joy
I don't know what you come to do
I don't know what you come to do
I come to praise his name....


My family including my children are still singing and recording, Unfortunately my husband Bishop Milton Hollins Sr passed away. My son Milton Hollins Jr.. aka ( Bishop Milton Hollins/Milton Hollins) also singer/songwriter/musician continues to carry on the legacy.
