1 Look up to Jesus and, with loving trust,
Keep singing, still singing;
He’ll safely guide us, he is wise and just;
Trust Jesus, the Saviour King.

Sing on thro’ sunny days,
Sing on in darken’d ways,
Sing, sing;
Sing on, his name is love;
Sing on, he reigns above;
Sing, sing.

2 Your song may cheer a heavy-laden heart,
Keep singing, still singing;
And stronger faith and brighter hope impart,
In Jesus, the Saviour King. [Refrain]

3 Forgetting not the blessings of the past,
Keep singing, still singing;
In summer bloom, or ‘mid the wintry blast,
Trust Jesus, the Saviour King. [Refrain]
