Singing the love of Jesus day by day

Representative Text

1 Singing the love of Jesus day by day,
Happy the songs we raise him on the way;
He is the Friend unfailing, kind and true,
Let all who know his mercy, sing anew.

Sing the Saviour's everlasting love,
Let the happy music ring above;
Sing his love, O ransomed soul,
While the heav'nly hallelujahs roll.

2 Trusting the love of Jesus all the while,
Whether the skies above us frown or smile;
His is the light unfading, piercing gloom,
Bringing to dreary pathways Eden's bloom. [Chorus]

3 Telling the love of Jesus, blest employ!
Bringing to those around us purest joy;
Showing his grace and beauty as we go,
Letting our cups of blessing overflow. [Chorus]
