Representative Text

1 Sing to the Lord, to God our Father,
Speak of His goodness from day to day;
Make known His glory, tell of His wisdom,
Sing how His kindness illumines our way.

Come with rejoicing, come with rejoicing,
Come with rejoicing, praise ye the Lord;
Sing hallelujah, sing hallelujah,
Sing hallelujah, praise ye the Lord.

2 Sing to the Lord, our great Redeemer,
Sing He is risen, with saving might;
Strong to deliver, praise Him forever,
Sing His salvation, His kingdom of light. [Chorus]

3 Sing to the Lord, the Holy Spirit,
Spirit of truth, our abiding friend;
Comforter holy, Spirit of guidance,
Welcome Him truly, let praises ascend. [Chorus]

4 Sing to the Lord, to God our Father,
Sing to our Saviour, eternal Son;
Sing to the Spirit, honor and worship,
Power and dominion, the Three in One. [Chorus]
