Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

1 Oh, sing as you go, ‘tis better, you know,
To sing and be glad all the day;
The journey is long, march on with a song;
Your music will brighten the way.

Refrain:
Oh, sin, joyfully sing,
Your music will brighten the way;
Oh, sing, joyfully sing,
Oh, sing and be glad all the day.

2 Oh, sing with your might, for better you’ll fight
The battle with Satan and wrong;
Yes, sing of His pow’r each day and each hour.
And Satan will flee at the song. [Refrain]

3 Oh, sing of His Word, for never was heard
A measure so true or so sweet,
And sinners will hear the message of cheer,
While angels the song will repeat. [Refrain]

4 Oh, joyfully sing, the echoes will ring
Adown the long vista of time,
Till millions shall raise an anthem of praise,
And echo the silvery chime. [Refrain]
