Against perceived and actual wrong

Blast the watch-trumpet loud and long

Write your booklet or your tract

Marshall every “fact-let” and fact

Be both punctual and exact

But don’t forget to sing.


There’s no harm in a firm stand

In pronouncements precise, yet grand

In having a rather heavy hand

If you still, with luster, sing.


Much good has come from vocal prose

Backing not though nose to nose

By opposing all narrow-way foes

But don’t forget to sing.



Sing of God’s salvation full and free,

Sing of Pentecost without gold or fee,

Sing “once though blind, now I see.”

Saints ought oft to sing!

Sing of grace to meet each trial,

Sing of love in the hardest mile,

Sing of Heaven’s up-coming smile.

Sing! God’s holy people sing!
