Lyrics

Sing out! Sing out!
And with a joy­ful heart,
O do not be dis­mayed.
The Lord of hosts is on your side,
How can you feel afraid?

Refrain

Sing out! Sing out a song of praise!
Let love in­spire your voice!
Sing out! Sing out!
The Lord doth reign!
Rejoice! Re­joice! Re­joice!

Sing out! Sing out!
And tho’ the storm clouds low­er,
Hope’s rain­bow soon will shine;
O look above, with eyes of faith,
Where gleams a light di­vine.

Refrain

Sing out! Sing out!
O let Thy will be done!
In sweet­est mu­sic ring;
In life, in death, we gain the vic­to­ry,
Thro’ Christ, the migh­ty King.
