For the joy set before Him He endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.@Hebrews 12:2

Sing of the cross, the wondrous cross,
Sing of its grace divine;
Christ our Redeemer
Saved us from sorrow and loss;
Sing on, sing on!
Sing of the cross, sing on, sing on!

Refrain

Sing of the King of glory,
God’s well belovèd Son;
Honor His name (so wondrous),
Mercy proclaim,
O friends of Jesus, sing on, sing on!

Sing of His crown, His royal crown,
Sing of its power divine;
King everlasting,
Vainly His enemies frown;
Sing on, sing on!
Sing of His crown, sing on, sing on!

Refrain

Sing of the throne, the radiant throne,
Throne of the King divine;
Jesus is reigning;
Happy allegiance we own;
Sing on, sing on!
Sing of the throne, sing on, sing on!

Refrain
