812. Come, Let Us Join Our Cheerful Songs

1 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
Honor and pow'r divine;
And blessings more than we can give,
Be, Lord, forever Thine.

4 Let all creation join in one,
To bless the sacred name
Of Him who sits upon the throne
And to adore the Lamb.
