Representative Text

1 I love to sing about Jesus,
When all are glad and gay;
The heart sings out with a joyful shout
The words that we long to say.

I love to sing about Jesus,
I love to sing about Jesus,
I love to sing about Jesus,
Because He died for me.

2 I love to sing about Jesus,
When sorrow clouds the day;
I know some song of His tender love
Will scatter the clouds away. [Refrain]

3 I love to sing about Jesus,
It keeps my heart from sin;
For when it’s full of my Savior’s praise,
No evil can dwell therein. [Refrain]

4 I love to sing about Jesus,
‘Tis all that I can do;
And if I faithfully sing His praise,
Some others may love Him too. [Refrain]
