Sing praises to God for the gift of His love,
That guards us with tenderest care,
As onward we march to that city above,
Its heavenly mansions to share.


O praise ye the Lord in song,
His blessèd name adore,
And tell His mercies o’er,
As onward we march along,
Singing praises to God ev­er­more.

Sing praises to God for the blessing of prayer,
That brings us so near to His throne;
For Christ in His beauty appears to us there,
And graciously welcomes His own.


Sing praises to God for His dear, blessèd Son,
Who came as a ransom from sin;
Thro’ Him we shall live when our journey is done,
Thro’ Him we may all enter in.


Sing praises to God for His mercy so free,
That reaches and saves even me;
That precious Re­deem­er once nailed to the tree,
The theme of our praises shall be.
