1 Savior, while on earth I tarry,
Tune my heart to sing thy praise;
While thro’ faith there is within me,
Hope of life thro’ endless days.

How we shall sing, how we shall sing,
Of our dear Redeemer’s love,
How we shall sing, how we shall sing,
When we reach that home above.

2 Long I wandered heavy laden,
Toil and care my soul oppressed;
Till I heard thy sweet voice saying:
“Come to me, I’ll give thee rest.” [Refrain]

3 Now rejoice, my soul, with gladness,
Soon I’ll reach that happy shore;
And with saints and angels joining,
Sing his praise for evermore. [Refrain]
