Songs of Gladness

Verse !:
Songs of gladness, never sadness
Sing the ransomed ones of heaven;
Anthem swelling ever telling
Of the joy of souls forgiven.

Refrain:
Sweetest music ever swelling
Thro’ the courts of heaven above;
Ever singing, ever saying
God is Life, and God is Love!

Verse 2:
Ever sunshine, never shadow,
Calm, mild, clear celestial day;
Ever summer in its brightness,
Never winter or decay.

Verse 3:
Ever gazing, loving, praising,
With the angel hosts above;
One eternal Hallelujah,
One eternal song of love.

Verse 4:
Never sighing, never sinning;
No distrust, nor doubt, nor fears;
Thro’ the long unending ages,
Thro’ the long eternal years.

Horatius Bonar, alt./Ira D. Sankey
