Representative Text

1 Let us sing redemption’s story,
Let us sing the Savior’s love,
Sons of God and heirs of glory,
Praise Him till ye meet above!

Let us sing redemption’s story,
Sing aloud the sweet refrain,
Till the angel hosts in glory
Send the echo back again.

2 Praise, oh, praise the love that sought us

3 With His mighty arms around us,
We can never faint or fear;
In His keeping who has found us,
All the way is bright and clear. [Refrain]
