Representative Text

1 Sing on, my soul, thy mission prove,
Sing sweetly on that song of love;
Uphold the right, condemn the wrong,
And triumph by the pow’r of song.

Refrain:
Sing on, sing on,
Sing on, my soul, sing sweetly on;
Song on, sing on,
Till all of sin and self has gone.

2 Sing on, my soul, the glad refrain,
Thy mission cannot prove in vain;
Sing out the false in heart and mind,
Sing errors out of ev’ry king. [Chorus]

3 Sing in the beautiful and true,
O sing that song forever new;
Sing in the reign of faith and love,
Sing sweetly on, thy mission prove. [Chorus]

4 Sing out the grov’ling and the low,
Sing vices out that ever grow;
Sing in the pure, the noble, high,
Sing grace in that never die. [Chorus]
