1 There’s always a song in the Christian’s heart,
When blue are the skies o’erhead;
Where blossoms abound, and the bright streams flow,
By his wonderful love we’re led.

Refrain:
Sing, oh, sing!
We will praise our King!
Ever sing, oh, sing!
‘Tis the sign of a happy heart;
Sing, oh, sing!
We will praise our King!
Ever sing, sing, sing!
It is joy to do our part.

2 There’s always a song in the Christian’s heart,
When troubles, like rain, shall fall;
Our trust is in God, for he knows the way,
And he tenderly loves us all. [Refrain]

3 There’s always a song in the Christian’s heart,
It never will cease to ring;
Wherever we are, and whate’er our lot,
We will joyfully praise our King. [Refrain]
