1 I sing of His love abiding,
I sing of His truth and grace,
I sing of His Pow’r providing
Of Jesus who stood in my place;
He carried my grief and sorrow,
He bore all my sin and shame,
I sing for I can’t keep silent,
O praise be to His dear name.

I sing for I can’t keep silent,
His love is the theme of my song,
And this is my sweetest enjoyment,
To sing of Him all day long.

2 I sing for I am so happy,
I sing for I am so free;
I sing of my dear Redeemer,
Who suffered on Calvary’s tree;
He’s building for me a mansion,
Where I shall forever be;
I sing for I can’t keep silent,
He shed His own blood for me. [Refrain]

3 I sing of the peace He gives me,
I sing of undying love;
I sing of the Holy Spirit,
Who came like a heavenly dove;
Revealing the truth in Jesus,
Revealing the pow’r divine;
I sing for I can’t keep silent,
I know that His love is mine. [Refrain]
