2. We Come with Songs of Gladness

1 We come with songs of gladness
To praise our God and King,
And for his love and mercy
Our grateful tribute bring.
The blessings of his bounty
Have crowned with joy our days;
Then sing we Alleluia,
And thankful voices raise.

Refrain:
Sing the songs of gladness,
Uplift the shout of praise;
Let every voice and heart rejoice
In God always.

2 We praise thee for earth’s beauty,
And for the sky’s blue dome;
We praise thee for our country;
We praise thee for our home;
We praise thee for thy gospel,
And for a Saviour’s love;
We praise thee for the promise
Of endless life above. [Refrain]

3 The angels lift their anthems
Of heav’nly joy on high,
And fill thy courts with music
In songs that never die.
And when beyond the river
We reach the city fair,
We’ll sing the song of gladness
With sweeter rapture there. [Refrain]
