Wake The Song Of Gladness


Wake the song of gladness,
Swell the song of love;
See, in hours of sadness,
Crystal light above;
Jesus, blessed Jesus,
Smiles away the night!
Everlasting favor,
Everlasting light.

Refrain:
Wake the song of gladness,
Swell the song of love!
Not a cloud of sadness,
In the land above.

Sing the mercies given,
To the trusting soul;
Manna sent from heaven,-
Streams that freely roll;
Tender consolation,
When the heart is sore;
Blessing of salvation,
Ever “more and more.” [Refrain]

Sing the blessed story
Of redeeming grace;
Sing of wondrous glory,
When we see His face;
Brief the day of sorrow,
Shelter’d by His side;
Long the golden morrow,
Where His joys abide. [Refrain]
