Sing away the shadows,
Flitting o’er the sky;
Sing of starry comforts,
In the by and by!
Sing of love unfailing,
Mercies ever new;
Pardon, peace and blessing,
Guidance kind and true.

Refrain

Sing away, sing away,
Hopeful be the lay;
Sing away the shadows,
Flitting o’er the sky;
Sing away, sing away,
Trusting ev’ry day;
Sing of starry comforts
In the by and by.

Sing away the shadows,
Anxious doubt and fear;
Sing the Savior’s promise,
Bringing sweetest cheer:
Trust the heav’nly Father,
He for you will care
More than for the sparrows,
Or the lilies fair.

Refrain

Sing away the shadows,
Selfish they may be;
Love’s own happy music
Brings the light so free,
Lift another’s burden,
Soothe another’s woe,
Sharing with your neighbor,
Joy’s returning glow.

Refrain
