Representative Text

1 A song is in my heart today,
For all my sins are wash’d away;
The precious blood has been applied,
The blood of Christ, the Crucified.

O song of love, O song sublime,
I feel like singing all the time;
O song within my heart of hearts
Since Christ my Lord His grace imparts.

2 O sweet the song I’ve learned to sin
In praise of my Redeemer, King;
The song to pardon sinners dear,
The song the angels love to hear. [Refrain]

3 O glad new song so full of joy,
O song that shall my tongue employ
Till called to join the blood-washed throng
In that bright home of endless song. [Refrain]
