1 Never let us sing of sadness,
Give us songs of joy and gladness,
Songs of cheer and not the sad,
Songs to make the weary glad.
Sing of love, and life, and peace,
Sing of sure and sweet release;
Sing, oh, sing, but when you sing,
Give us songs of joy and peace.
2 Life is full enough of frowning,
Give us more of Heaven’s crowning,
More of peace and less of pain,
Less of loss and more of gain. [Refrain]
3 Dwell on blessings, not on sorrow,
And more bright may prove the morrow,
And some wrong you hold today,
May have winged itself away. [Refrain]Source: The Cyber Hymnal #11725
