Keep the Praise Waves Rolling

Full Text

1 Lift your voices to the Lord,
sweetly sing in true accord,
Keep the praise waves rolling on,
Keep the praise waves rolling on;
Joyous carols let us raise,
He is worthy of our praise,
Keep the praise waves rolling on, rolling on,

Chorus:
Keep the praise waves rolling on,
Keep the praise waves rolling on.
Let the hallelujahs ring to our everlasting King,
Keep the praise waves rolling on, rolling on.

2 Praise His name in ev'ry place,
praise His soul-redeeming grace,
Keep the praise waves rolling on,
Keep the praise waves rolling on;
Till the angels fair above,
Hear us singing of His love,
Keep the praise waves rolling on, rolling on, [Chorus]

3 Till in yonder world of light
we behold His glory bright,
Keep the praise waves rolling on,
Keep the praise waves rolling on;
Till with all the saved we sing
in the palace of the King,
Keep the praise waves rolling on, rolling on, [Chorus]
