1 Sweetly sing, sweetly sing,
Let your joyful voices ring;
Watch and pray, watch and pray,
‘Tis the Sabbath day.
Let the whole creation sing
Praises to our God and King;
Over all, over all
Will His blessings fall.

2 Look above, look above,
Jesus is a God of love,
Forward go, forward go,
Fearing not the foe.
Let the little children bring
Grateful hearts an offering;
Look above, look above,
Sing His wondrous love.

3 Come today, come today,
And His gracious word obey;
Humbly bow, humbly bow,
Christ will save you now.
Trust Him all the journey thro’,
There’s a golden crown for you;
Then arise, mount the skies,
Gain the heavenly prize.
