Singing for Jesus

Representative Text

1 Garlands we bring, fresh garlands of song,
To welcome our Savior and King;
Let's join our glad voices with the throng
Of angels as they sing.
They sing of the Savior's tender love,
And mercies so graciously given;
By Him who now reigns o'er all above,
O'er earth and o'er sea and heaven.

Wafting along sweet garlands of song,
Over the land and over the sea;
Singing for Jesus,
Yes, singing for Jesus, our theme shall be.

2 Garlands we bring, fresh garlands of songs,
To Jesus the praise all be given;
For He it was said, "Oh, let them come,
Of such is the kingdom of heaven."
We'll join with the loving angel band,
And with them our voices blend;
And with them we'll shout all glory be
To Jesus, the sinner's friend. [Chorus]
