Oh, sing once more of Jesus,
Tune every heart and voice,
Proclaim His tender mercy,
And in His love rejoice.

Refrain

Sing, sing, sing once more,
Once more sing of Jesus;
Praise His wondrous, matchless love;
Sing once more of Jesus.

Oh, sing once more of Jesus,
The joyful strain prolong,
While angels hover round us,
And martyrs join the song.

Refrain

Oh, sing once more of Jesus,
And now in early youth,
Come let us walk together,
The path of life and truth.

Refrain

Oh, sing once more of Jesus,
Our best and truest friend,
Whose hand from snares of evil
Will still our hearts defend.

Refrain

Oh, sing once more of Jesus,
Who bends a listening ear,
From yonder world of glory,
The children’s song to hear.
