Sing with a tune­ful song, sing and adore
Jesus the Ho­ly One, king ev­er­more;
He is the de­sert rock, there we may hide,
Under His migh­ty shade safe we abide.


Joyfully sing, joy­ful­ly sing,
Joyfully sing, joy­ful­ly sing,
Joyfully sing, joy­ful­ly sing,
Light of eter­ni­ty,
Honor and praise to Thee,
Now and for­ev­er be,
Jesus our king.

Sing with a grate­ful heart, hal­low His name,
All He has done for us, glad­ly pro­claim;
Tell how each pro­mise sweet cheers us along,
Praise we the Lord of lords, fount­ain of song.


Sing with a trust­ing heart, look­ing away
Up to the bright­er land, bright­er than day;
Sing with a glow­ing heart filled with His love,
Sing till our hap­py souls an­chor above.
