1 Someone has need of our singing,
Our singing, our singing;
Someone has need of our singing,
In gladness, or sorrow and care.
Comfort and joy it is bringing,
Is bringing, is bringing,
So while we are raising sweet voices in praising
A blessing for someone we bear.
2 Someone has need of the story,
The story, the story;
Someone has need of the story,
Of love and redemption from sin.
So when we sing of His glory,
His glory, His glory,
We sing of salvation, His gift to creation,
A blessing for someone we win.
3 Here in His Book we are learning,
Are learning, are learning,
Here in His book we are learning,
His word, and His will, and His way.
Hearts to the Savior are turning,
Are turning, are turning;
Oh, may He now take us, accept us and make us,
A blessing for someone each day.
