|COME, let us join our cheerful songs
With angels round the throne;
Ten thousand thousand are their tongues,
But all their joys are one.
|2||‘Worthy the Lamb that died,’ they cry,
‘To be exalted thus.’
‘Worthy the Lamb,’ our lips reply,
‘For He was slain for us.’
|3||Jesus is worthy to receive
Honour and power divine;
And blessings more than we can give
Be, Lord, for ever Thine.
|4||Let all that dwell above the sky,
And air, and earth, and seas,
Conspire to lift Thy glories high,
And speak Thine endless praise.
|5||The whole creation join in one,
To bless the sacred name
Of Him that sits upon the throne,
And to adore the Lamb.
|Isaac Watts, 1674-1748|
