New Words to Old Hymn

306. New Words to Old Hymn

I do love writing new words to old hymns and especially relished doing this one to the tune of “Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus.” The other words are a bit too militaristic for me. Don’t just read it—sing it!

Sing Out, Sing Out for Jesus

Sing out, sing out for Jesus,

The song of love’s not done,

Sing out, sing out for Jesus,

The love goes on and on.

From God to each one present

As we that love receive,

We send it out to neighbors

Who feeling love, believe.

Sing out, sing out for Jesus,

He calls to us each day.

Sing out, sing out for Jesus

And follow in his way.

We can be justice people

When wealthy trample poor,

When nations fight with nations,

We’ll stand for no more war.

Sing out, sing out for Jesus,

Our voices must be strong,

Sing out, sing out for Jesus,

So others sing along.

The table’s spread and ready,

The invitation’s clear,

We give a hearty welcome

To each one far and near.

Sing to tune “Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus.”
