1 Sing in happy measures
Of our Father’s love,
Count the many pleasures
Coming from above;
Ev’ry gift a token
Of His tender care,
May our thanks, outspoken,
Praise to heaven bear.

Refrain:
Singing, sweetly singing,
On the King’s highway,
Of our Father’s mercy,
Ev’ry passing day;
Singing of His goodness,
And His tender care;
May our songs of gladness
Praise to heaven bear.

2 Sing the wondrous story
Of our Savior’s grace,
Yielding His bright glory
For the sinner’s place;
Sing His mercies tender
Falling as the dew,
And the fadeless splendor
Of His promise true. [Refrain]

3 Sing in happy measures
When the heart’s cast down;
Sing immortal treasures,
Sing of glory’s crown;
Ev’ry cloud of sorrow
Soon will pass away;
Then the joyful morning,
God’s eternal day! [Refrain]
