Representative Text

1 Sing of Jesus, troubled heart;
Tho’ thy dearest joys depart,
And thy path may lonely be,
He is nearest then to thee.

Sing thro’ all the stormy day,
Soon the hours will glide away,
Clouds will vanish from thy sight,
And et eve it shall be light.

2 Sing of Jesus, weary soul,
Tho’ the billows o’er thee roll;
Sing of Jesus and His love,
Sing of home and rest above. [Chorus]

3 Sing of Jesus, trust His pow’r
To protect each coming hour;
Ev’ry cross we meekly bear
Makes the crown more bright and fair. [Chorus]

4 Sing of Jesus, do His will;
He who led will lead thee still;
When a few more waves are past
Thou shalt win thy crown at last. [Chorus]
