1. Come! tune your heart, to bear its part,
And celebrate Messiah’s feast with praises, with praises;
Let love inspire the joyful choir,
While to the God of love, glad hymns it raises, it raises.
2. Exalt His name; with joy proclaim,
God loved the world, and through His Son forgave us, forgave us;
Oh! what are we, that, Lord, we see
Thy wondrous love, in Christ who died to save us, to save us!
3. Your refuge place in His free grace,
Trust in His name, and day by day repent you, repent you;
Ye mock God’s Word, who call Him Lord,
And follow not the pattern He hath lent you, hath lent you.
4. O Christ, to prove for Thee my love
In brethren Thee my hands shall clothe and cherish, and cherish,
To each sad heart sweet hope impart,
When worn with care, with sorrow nigh to perish, to perish.
5. Come! praise the Lord; in Heav’n are stored
Rich gifts for those who here His name esteemèd, esteemèd;
Rejoice in Christ, and praise Him ye redeemèd, redeemèd.
