    What a Friend we have in Jesus,

    All because we do not carry
    Everything to God in prayer!

    Lift every voice and sing till earth and heaven ring,
    ring with the harmonies of liberty;

    let it resound loud as the rolling sea.
    Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us,
    sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us;
    facing the rising sun of our new day begun,
    let us march on till victory is won.
