Sacred Songs and Solos Lyrics
Hymn No.1002

First Line: Songs of gladness — never sadness —,

Songs of gladness — never sadness —
Sing the ransomed ones of heaven ;
Anthems swelling, ever telling
Of the joy of souls forgiven.

Sweetest music ever swelling
Through the courts of heaven above:
Ever singing, ever saying,
God is Life, and God is Love '

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

3 Ever gazing, loving, praising,
With the antze hosts above ;
One eternal Hallelujah !
One eternal so ig of love.

4 Never sighing, never sinning;
No distrust, nor loubt, nor fears;
Through the long unending ages,
Through the long eternal years.
