Raise the song, raise the song, sound it far and near,
Let the notes of rapture swell
With the joyful words they tell;
Raise the song, raise the song, happy anthems bring,
Telling all who hear the call, the Lord is king.

Refrain

Bring, merrily bring, voices and hearts to join the song,
Sing, merrily sing, raising a chorus full and strong;
Ring, merrily ring, echoing bells from Heaven ring!
Joy we raise in a song of praise to Christ our king.

Raise the song, raise the song, over land and sea,
So our music may impart
Joy renewed in every heart;
Raise the song, raise the song, set the echoes free,
Words of praise, thro’ all our days, our song shall be.

Refrain

Raise the song, raise the song, see the banners sway!
May they ever brightly shine
Glowing with a light divine;
Raise the song, raise the song, joyful anthems bring,
Music sweet must ever greet the Lord, our king.
