Representative Text

1 Sing to the Lord for the gospel's joyful sound,
Sing to the Father, whose mercies abound,
Sing to the Son, who has brought to the race,
News of redemption, glad tidings of grace.

Raise a grateful anthem!
Raise a grateful anthem,
For the gospel's joyful sound.
Raise a grateful anthem!
Raise a grateful anthem,
Sing a glad hosanna for the vict'ry over sin.

2 Shout unto God for the triumph over sin.
Trust in the Lamb, and the victory win,
Come to the fountain, and wash in the blood,
Shed for the guilty, a soul-cleansing flood. [Chorus]

3 Praise to the Father for pardon thro' His Son,
Thanks be to Christ for the deeds he has done,
Praise to the Spirit, sent down from above,
Working in us in the infinite love. [Chorus]
