Lyrics

Sing out! Sing out!
And with a joyful heart,
O do not be dismayed.
The Lord of hosts is on your side,
How can you feel afraid?

Refrain

Sing out! Sing out a song of praise!
Let love inspire your voice!
Sing out! Sing out!
The Lord doth reign!
Rejoice! Rejoice! Rejoice!

Sing out! Sing out!
And tho’ the storm clouds lower,
Hope’s rainbow soon will shine;
O look above, with eyes of faith,
Where gleams a light divine.

Refrain

Sing out! Sing out!
O let Thy will be done!
In sweetest music ring;
In life, in death, we gain the victory,
Thro’ Christ, the mighty King.
