1 Saints of God, rejoice and sing!
From the heart rejoice and sing!
Thro' the storms and strife,
and the cares of life,
Rejoice, rejoice and sing!

2 God is love--rejoice and sing!
Look above--rejoice and sing!
Heaven's King extol from a trusting soul:
Rejoice, rejoice and sing!

3 Let the morning give you cheer,
And the evening bring no fear,
For the God above is a God of love:
Rejoice, rejoice and sing!
