18. Come, Let Our Voices Join to Raise

1 Come, let our voices join to raise
A sacred song of solemn praise;
God is a sovereign King; rehearse
His honor in exalted verse.

2 Come, let our souls address the Lord,
Who framed our nature by His word.
He is our Shepherd we the sheep
His mercy chose, His pastures keep.

3 Come, let us turn with holy fear
To Him who now invites us near;
Accept the offered grace today,
Nor lose the blessing by delay.

4 Come, seize the promise while it waits,
And march to Zion’s heavenly gates;
Believe, and take the promised rest;
Obey and be forever blest.
