We'll sing it all around the world,

Hear the sound of the free, 
                        D/F♯ 
Hear the cry of liberty, 
          A/C♯                    C
We will rejoice in You, we will rejoice.
       G
As we sing of all You've done, 
                             D/F♯ 
And the wonders of Your love, 
        A/C♯                      C
We will rejoice in You, we will rejoice.
Em     D/F♯ G         A/C♯ 
Rising up  around the earth 
     Em       D/F♯         G       A/C♯
Is a heavenly song of Your endless worth, 
        C          C/D        C/E    C/F♯
Growing louder and louder and louder.
G        G                 G/F♯ 
Then one day Your heavenly song 
               A/C♯         C
Will drown all music but its own.
         G                 G/F♯ 
Then one day Your heavenly song 
               A/C♯          C     G
Will drown all music but its own.

THIS IS THE ANTHEM OF THE FREE
This is the song of the redeemed,
Jesus, Your praises rising
Higher and higher and higher.
We'll sing it loud, we'll sing it strong,
We'll sing it all around the world,
Jesus, Your praise will last
Forever and ever and ever.

Hear the sound of the free,
Hear the cry of liberty,
We will rejoice in You, we will rejoice.
As we sing of all You've done,
And the wonders of Your love,
We will rejoice in You, we will rejoice.

Rising up around the earth
Is a heavenly song of Your endless worth,
Growing louder and louder and louder.

Then one day Your heavenly song
Will drown all music but its own.
Then one day Your heavenly song
Will drown all music but its own.
(Repeat)
