425 (2)Version 2SM
    COME, we that love the Lord,
   And let our joys be known;
Join in a song with sweet accord,
    And thus surround the throne.
2      The God that rules on high,
    And thunders when He please,
That rides upon the stormy sky,
    And manages the seas . . .
3      This awesome God is ours,
    Our Father and our love;
He shall send down His heavenly powers
    To carry us above.
4      And here—before we rise
    To that immortal state—
The thought of such a world of bliss
    Should constant joy create.
5      God’s saints have ever found
    Glory begun below:
That heavenly fruits on earthly ground
    From faith and hope may grow!
Isaac Watts, 1674-1748
