I'd love to play this song. I figured out the chord changes but not the lyrics. It seems Bible based but there are a lot of words I can't get. Like, what kind of snake does she mention that strikes out the unbeliever? etc
Any ideas where to get those lyrics?

The correct title is JOYFUL NOISE. Leon Russell wrote it, and Leon & Mary Russell recorded it on "Make Love to the Music" (1977, rereleased 2007). Maria Muldaur also recorded it on her album "Southern Winds" (1978).
(Other people have written other songs with the same title.)
Here's a bit of the lyrics, from a sample:
Make a joyful noise
What a wonderful thing
When the people sing.
All over(?) the world
Why the girls and boys
Make a joyful noise.
