1 Sing again to the Saviour we love so well,
From our innermost hearts let our glad praise swell;
Sing His name, blessed name, in an anthem grand,
Till its music shall ring over ev’ry land.
He is the Saviour we love
Praised by the angels is He.
Bending before Him they laud and adore Him,
The man of Galilee.
Unto the nations afar,
Tidings of gladness go tell;
Never grow weary of praising the Saviour,
The Saviour we love so well.
2 Sing of blessings that fall from His wounded hands!
Of His wonderful words, of His blest commands;
Of the grace that He gives to the weakest one,
Of the rest that awaits when the race is run. [Refrain]
3 Sing oh, sing till the world shall repeat the song,
And with gladness the praise of the Lord prolong;
Till all nations together in Him shall dwell;
Praise the glorious Saviour we love so well. [Refrain]
