160. Now begin the heavenly theme

1 Now begin the heavenly theme,
Sing aloud in Jesus' name!
Ye who His salvation prove,
Triumph in redeeming love.

2 Ye who see the Father's grace
Beaming in the Saviour's face,
As to heaven ye onward move,
Triumph in redeeming love.

3 Mourning souls dry up your tears;
Banish all your guilty fears;
See your guilt and curse remove,
Cancelled by redeeming love.

4 Ye, alas! who long have been
Willing slaves of death and sin,
Now from bliss no longer rove;
Stop, and taste redeeming love.

Amen.
