Lyrics

Only a song for the Master,
Sung in the spirit of prayer;
Only a song for the Master,
Cheering some one in despair.

Refrain

Only a song, only a song,
Praising my Savior all the day long,
Only a song, only a song,
Praising my Savior all the day long.

Only a song for the Master,
Bringing a message to you;
Only a song for the Master,
Telling a story so true.

Refrain

Only a song for the Master,
Sinner, O listen today;
Only a song for the Master,
Thro’ Him there’s nothing to pay.
