Sing unto the Lord, bless His name; show forth His salvation from day to day. Psalm 96:2

Sing the praises of the Savior,
Tune your hearts and sweetly sing;
Join in asking for His favor,
Ask, for He is listening.
Allelujah is the chorus,
By the choirs of Heaven sung;
By the loved ones gone before us,
By the pure of every tongue.
Mercy was His chiefest pleasure,
Ere the world began to move;
Sweetly sing in numbered measure,
Sing the dear Redeemer’s love.
Turn to Jesus—Prince of glory,
Holy prophet, priest and king;
Spread abroad the wondrous story,
Children all, His praises sing.
