Representative Text

1. Jesus, grant us all a blessing, Shouting, singing, send it down; Lord, above may we go praising, And rejoicing in Thy love. Shout, O glory! sing glory hallelujah! I'm going where pleasure never dies. 2. Jesus, pardon all our follies, Since together we have been. Make us humble, make us holy, Cleanse us all from ev'ry sin. Shout, O glory! sing glory hallelujah! I'm going where pleasure never dies.
