1. Sing, Christ our Savior and our King!
Make known the news the angels bring:
an infant promising new life,
his peace and justice ending strife.
Let joyful carols fill the earth
and anthems greet Messiah's birth.
2. Sing, Christ in glory on the mount.
Sing, Christ of grace and truth the fount.
Remember water, wine and bread
and those he washed and healed and fed.
Let music serve to bring to mind
the love of Christ for humankind.
3. Sing, Christ is lifting high the cross,
accepting all earth's pain and loss.
His bruises move our hardened hearts
to seek the pardon love imparts,
and music's requiem of psalms
the legacy of sin disarms.
4. Sing, Christ has died and now is raised;
with festive hymns his Name be praised.
The Spirit sets our hearts on fire
with organ, trumpet, drum and choir,
and music wondrously revives
our faith, our hope, our daily lives.
5. Sing, Christ has sent his Spirit here,
empow'ring us to persevere,
and as we live and work and pray,
may music be our strength and stay,
a fount of songs to guide and cheer
till Christ, his work complete, draws near.
