Singing for Jesus, our Savior and king,
Singing for Jesus, the Lord whom we love;
All adoration we joyously bring,
Longing to praise as they praise Him above.

Singing for Jesus, and trying to win
Many to love Him, and join in the song;
Calling the weary and wandering in,
Rolling the chorus of gladness along.

Singing for Jesus, our shepherd and guide,
Singing for gladness of heart that He gives.
Singing for wonder and praise that He died,
Singing for blessing and joy that He lives.

Singing for Jesus, yes, singing for joy;
Thus will we praise Him and tell out His love,
Till He shall call us to brighter employ,
Singing for Jesus, for ever above.
