1 Sing of the cross, the wondrous cross,
Sing of its grace divine;
Christ our Redeemer Saved us from sorrow and loss;
Sing on, sing on!
Sing of the cross, sing on, sing on!

Refrain:
Sing of the King of glory,
God’s well-beloved Son;
Honor His name, mercy proclaim,
O friends of Jesus, sing on, sing on!

2 Sing of His crown, His royal crown,
Sing of it pow’r divine;
King everlasting,
Vainly His enemies frown;
Sing on, sing on!
Sing of His crown, sing on, sing on! [Refrain]

3 Sing of the throne, the radiant throne,
Throne of the King divine;
Jesus is reigning,
Happy allegiance we own;
Sing on, sing on!
Sing of the throne, sing on, sing on! [Refrain]
