1 I’ve learned to sing a glad new song
Of praise unto our king!
And now with all my ransomed powers
His praises I will sing.

His praises will I sing,
He is my Lord and king;
And now with all my ransomed powers
His praises will I sing.

2 I’ve learned to sing the song of peace,
’Tis sweeter every day,
Since Jesus calmed my troubled soul,
And bore my sins away. [Refrain]

3 I sing the song of perfect love,
It casteth out all fear!
O breadth, O length, O depth, O height!
O love so full of cheer. [Refrain]

4 I’ve learned to sing the song of joy,
My cup is running o’er,
With blessings full of peace and love,
And still there’s more and more. [Refrain]

5 Soon I shall sing the new, new song
Of Moses and the lamb,
With all the sainted hosts above,
Before the great I Am! [Refrain]
