1 Merrily sing your song, helping the world along,
Fill the lonely hearts with cheer;
Making the pathway bright, shedding the gospel light,
Banishing ev’ry doubt and fear.

Refrain:
Sing, merrily sing,
Sing the songs of the gospel light,
Sing, merrily sing,
Fill the world with its message bright;
Sing, merrily sing,
Till the echoes return the song,
And the world is lifted above its gloom
And the heart made strong.

2 Merrily sing your song, cheering the weary throng,
Marching in life’s rugged road;
Sing of the love of God, sing of the precious blood,
Sing of the one who lifts the load. [Refrain]

3 Merrily sing your song, shorten the days so long,
Sing of Christ and heav’n above;
Shadows will flee away, darkness will turn to day,
As you extol the God of love. [Refrain]
