Oh, let us be glad
In our Sav­ior and king,
No tongues ever had
Greater reason to sing;
Our hearts we will raise
With our voices in song,
And give Him the praise,
To whom praises belong.


Be glad, be glad,
Oh, let us be glad in our king;
Lift up happy voices and praise Him,
Till space with His praises shall ring.

His wonderful name
Makes our vic­to­ry sure,
We share in His fame
Which shall ever endure;
On earth we’ve His Word
And the gift of His love;
The joy of the Lord
Yet awaits us above.


We bless His dear name,
Thro’ smiles and thro’ tears,
His love all the same
Hath encompassed our years;
Oh, who could be sad
When thus held in His care?
Come, let us be glad,
And God’s goodness declare.
