Representative Text

1 Sing we the Saviour’s pow’r,
Working, through sun and show’r,
Blessings for ev’ry hour,
Sing ye His love!
Giving us all we need,
Prompting each worthy deed,
Onward, His hand will lead
To heights above.

Praising our King,
Who is reigning above,
Our hearts will we bring,
For His wonderful love;
His children will sing;
All glory and praise
For His wonderful love.

2 Wing we a Saviour’s love,
Pleading for us above,
Sending the Holy Dove,
Comforter blest;
He who for sinners died,
Jesus, the Crucified,
With us will still abide,
Give peace and rest. [Refrain]

3 Wing we the Saviour’s grace,
Bidding us seek His face,
Up to His holy place,
Let songs ascend;
Songs that shall never fail,
E’en through the shadowed vale,
Light that shall never pale,
Our steps attend. [Refrain]
