Representative Text

1 We are singing sweetest praises
In our sabbath school today,
Learning lessons of the Master,
He the life, the truth, the way.

Singing praises, sweetest praises
Of the heavenly home above;
We are singing glad hosannas
Of the Father and his love.

2 We are weeping o’er Christ’s suffering,
Weeping o’er the blood he shed,
But our sigh will change to singing
When his crown is on our head. [Chorus]

3 We are singing sweetest praises
Of the Savior crucified,
Who for love of us, his children,
Came to earth and lived and died. [Chorus]

4 Sweetest praises, glad hosannas,
WE will sing to him for aye,
Who doth keep our feet from falling
When they falter in the way. [Chorus]
