| LET earth and Heaven agree,
Angels and men be joined,
To celebrate with me
The Saviour of mankind;
To adore the all-atoning Lamb,
And bless the sound of Jesus’ name.
|2|| Jesus, transporting sound!
The joy of earth and Heaven;
No other help is found,
No other name is given
By which we can salvation have;
But Jesus came our souls to save.
|3|| His name the sinner hears,
And is from sin set free;
’Tis music in his ears,
’Tis life and liberty;
New songs do then his lips employ,
And leaps his gladdened heart for joy.
|4|| O all-surpassing love!
O all-redeeming grace!
How swiftly didst Thou move
To save a fallen race:
What shall I do to make it known
What Thou for lost mankind hast done?
|Charles Wesley, 1707-88|
