Representative Text

1 A song, a song of joy,
To Him who died for me;
Let old and young their tongues employ,
And sing the jubilee.

He paid the price for you,
He paid the price for me;
His blood was shed on Calvary,
For you and me.

2 Thy blessed name we praise,
Our Saviour and our King;
Our joyous songs to Thee we raise,
And grateful offerings bring. [Refrain]

3 Thy smile upon us rest,
Now met to praise and pray;
O shed Thy love in every breast,
And guide our feet today. [Refrain]

Kenyon, Archibald, was born at Athol, Warren County, New York, July 31, 1813, and entered the Baptist ministry in 1838. He has written a large number of hymns, several of which are found in the Royal Diadem, Pure Gold, Our Glad Hosanna, Glad Refrain, and other American Sunday Schools and Mission hymn-books. "Jesus, hear me when I pray" (Divine Help desired) in Our Glad Hosanna, 1882, is a good example of his work. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)… Go to person page >
