1 Keep the music ringing,
In the trusting heart,
Close to Jesus clinging,
Praise will ne'er depart;
Chiming with life's story,
Silver tones of peace,
To our Saviour's glory,
Let them never cease.

Chorus:
Keep the music ringing all the way;
Serve the Lord with gladness ev'ry day;
Keep the music ringing,
Keep the music ringing,
Keep the music ringing all the way.

2 Keep the music ringing,
Let the joy notes flow
Like a fountain springing,
Lit with heav'nly glow;
Sing his love constraining,
As you pass along,
Till his knowledge gaining
Others learn your song. [Chorus]

3 Keep the music ringing,
Let it gladness bear,
Consolation bringing
In a world of care;
Sing of help availing
In the thickest fight,
Sing of grace unfailing
In the darkest night. [Chorus]

4 Keep the music ringing,
In the house of God,
Worship him with singing,
Tell his love abroad!
In his holy dwelling,
In the courts above,
O what strains are swelling;
Raptured hymns of love. [Chorus]
