1 We will chant in psalms of glory,
We will sing in hymns of praise;
We will tell the dear old story—
Up to Heav’n our voices raise—
Singing of a Father’s mercies,
Of our Master’s perfect love;
How He came to earth and blessed us,
Then returned to Heav’n above.

Glory, glory be to the Father,
Praise and honor to the Son;
We will chant in loudest hosannas
For the vict’ry He has won.

2 We will chant in psalms of gladness,
We will sing both loud and long
Of the earth so full of beauty;
We will join in sweetest song,
Of the springtime and the summer,
Of the mountain, hill and plain—
To the great and glorious Giver;
Praise and honor to His name. [Refrain]

3 We will chant our sweetest music,
We will sing in tuneful lay
Of the homes we love and cherish;
Up to Heav’n we’ll offer praise—
Yes, we’ll thank our heav’nly Father
For the love which He doth give;
And we’ll seek to own His favor
By the lives which we may live. [Refrain]
