1 If you are troubled, or worried, or sad,
Sing it away, sing it way;
Sing of the Savior until you are glad,
Sing it away, sing it way.

Refrain:
Sing, sing away, tho’ life’s burdens oppress!
Sing, sing away, never yield to distress!
Jesus will help you if true you will stay,
Sing it, sing it, sing it away.

2 If you are tempted to wander in sin,
Sing it away, sing it way;
If there is shadow without or within,
Sing it away, sing it way. [Refrain]

3 Is there an obstacle blocking the path?
Sing it away, sing it way;
Be not discouraged, and yield not to wrath,
Sing it away, sing it way. [Refrain]
