Representative Text

1 Singing to Christ our King as we march along,
Telling his love to all with a happy, happy song,
Praise him with heart and voice all along our way,
And trust in him for all we need, he guides us ev'ry day.

Chorus:
Sing, sing,
Sing to Jesus ev'ry day,
Sing, sing,
Sing to Jesus all the way;
Onward go with hearts aglow and burning with his love,
Jesus who reigns above.

2 Telling the story old, how he died for men,
Angels with harps of gold tell of how he rose again,
Living in heav'n above, yet on earth below;
His blessings fall upon us all wherever we may go. [Chorus]

3 Praise him for mercies past, for his loving care,
Praise him for blessings giv'n we should with the needy share,
Praise him while life shall last, till his face we see,
Then sing his praise thro' endless days, thro' all eternity. [Chorus]
