1 Never mind the weather, dark or fair,
Keep singing, keep singing;
There is One who has you in His care,
Keep singing all the day.

Singing makes the burden lighter,
Singing drives the care away;
With a prayer and song the path is lighter,
Keep singing all the day;
Singing in the early morning,
Singing as the moments fly,
And others who hear you,
Will answer by and by.

2 Do you get discourages as you go?
Keep singing, keep singing;
Soon the cup of joy will overflow,
Keep singing all the day. [Refrain]

3 When the day is hard and things go wrong,
Keep singing, keep singing;
You may help another with your song,
Keep singing all the day. [Refrain]

4 God is over all, so do not grieve,
Keep singing, keep singing;
Fear ye not! His child He will not leave,
Keep singing all the day. [Refrain]
