We Ought To Sing

Paul and Silas shared God’s love
But they were thrown in jail
Stripped and beaten, left for dead
But they praised God instead
Quaking broke the walls and chains
The jailer came to see
Paul and Silas stayed shared God’s love
He set that prisoner free

We ought to sing
We ought to shout
To the God who works things out
Even when our lives are hard
He’s working for our good
And deep within our heart of hearts
His spirit comes to stay
Teaching us to be like Jesus
And give his love away
