O let us rejoice in the Lord evermore

1
O let us rejoice in the Lord evermore,
Though all things around us be trying,
Though floods of affliction like sea billows roar,
It’s better to sing than be sighing.
  Then rejoice evermore, rejoice evermore,
It is better to sing than be sighing:
It is better to live than be dying;
  So let us rejoice evermore.
2
O let us rejoice in the Lord evermore,
When the darts of the tempter are flying,
For Satan still dreads, as he oft did of yore,
Our singing much more than our sighing.
3
O let us rejoice in the Lord evermore,
When sickness upon us is stealing,
No cordial like gladness our strength can restore,
For joy is the fountain of healing.

It's better to sing than be sighing; better to live than be dying; better to rejoice than be worrying; better to be thankful than be murmuring; better to enjoy the Lord than be defeated and better to stay in the spirit than the mind! Amen... I'm so happy to encounter this hymn in hymnsradio.net. Thank the Lord for such an encouragement. Lord, You are my wondrous song to sing...

I'm trying to learn this on the piano by ear & remember many times brother Dick Taylor breaking out in this chorus & how I'm reminded to rejoice in the Lord even when floods of afflictions like sea billows roar, it really is better to sing. Thank You Lord for such comfort.

This is the last hymn we sang in the international conference here in London. Hallelujah! for the Body of Christ. For the churches all around the world. There's nothing sweeter than the church life. Rejoice evermore!!! We sing our praise, giving glory to God!!!

I love this song! Are the lyrics availible anywhere? Oh, Praise the Lord that we have the enemy beneath our feet!

Once you sing like this, your coldness will turn to zeal, your deadness will turn to life, your weakness will turn to strength, and your sorrow will turn to joy. Therefore, you should memorize the hymns thoroughly. At the same time, you need to be filled within. If there is no filling, there will be no overflow.

As we enjoy this hymn, it is as refreshing as eating ice cream, especially for the older brothers and sisters when they come to verse 3:

O let us rejoice in the Lord evermore,

When sickness upon us is stealing,

No cordial like gladness our strength can restore,

For joy is the fountain of healing.

As you fellowship with the Lord this way, you may say to the Lord, "No cordial like gladness my strength can restore, for joy is the fountain of healing." Then you will surely have a desire—"I will go to the meeting."
