Scripture Verse

Serve the Lord with gladness: come before His presence with singing. Psalm 100:2


Words & Mu­sic: Ag­nes C. Ell­ing­wood, 1915 (🔊 pdf nwc).

If you know where to get a good pho­to of Ell­ing­wood (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


Have you grown dis­cour­aged, wea­ry,
Amid the cares of life?
Do you oft­en grow dis­hear­tened
And fal­ter in the strife?
Jesus knows about the bur­den,
He’ll bear you safe­ly thro’;
Then sing a song of glad­ness,
He’ll care for you.


Keep on sing­ing!
The world is bright and fair;
God is o’er us,
His love is ev­ery­where;
He will keep you,
Just trust Him all the way,
And keep on sing­ing,
Thro’ ev­ery day.

Do you wan­der from the Sav­ior,
And some­times lose the way?
Does the tempt­er oft as­sail you
And beck­on day by day?
Never fear! be strong, cour­age­ous,
The Lord will sure­ly win;
He’ll con­quer ev­ery tri­al
And save from sin.


Hear the Sav­ior gent­ly plead­ing,
Come lay your sins on Me;
I will give you full sal­va­tion,
Will par­don, set you free
Just be­lieve His pre­cious pro­mise,
Accept Him for your own;
Come sing your psalms of glad­ness
Before His throne.
