Singing All the Day

Representative Text

1 I sing of Jesus’ wondrous love,
His sweet, His gentle, loving sway!
My heart is melted with the song,
That I’m singing all the day!

I am singing, I am singing,
Light is shining on my way, on my way all the day;
I am singing, I am singing,
I am singing, I am singing all the day!

2 My soul with sin was all defiled,
His blood has washed the stain away,
And now He owns me as His child,
So I’m singing all the day! [Chorus]

3 By faith I see the golden gate,
Swung by the angels far away;
With joy I hope to enter there,
So I’m singing all the day! [Chorus]
