1 Thanks be to God for the vict’ry over sin;
Thanks for His Word and the teaching therein;
Thanks for His Son who was given to proclaim
Tidings of good, and the earth to reclaim.

Sing, Sing,
Sing for the vict’ry over sin;
Sing a glad hosanna,
Sing a glad hosanna!
Hosanna! hosanna! hosanna!

2 Thanks for the gift of His loved, His only Son;
Thanks for the work which on earth He begun;
Thanks for the peace which it brings unto the soul,
Working for Jesus, His love to unfold. [Chorus]

3 Thanks for redemption and purchase by His blood;
Thanks for the love He has taught in His Word;
Thanks for His Spirit, for evermore to reign,
Peace on the earth, and good will unto men. [Chorus]
