CCCXVI. Come let us praise our God!

1 Come let us praise our God!
Like as the angels do:
And shew his love abroad
To all on earth below.
Our joyful songs to God we raise,
And humbly join to sing his praise.

2 The mercies of our Lord
Are endless great and good;
To us they e'er afford,
Salvation, life and food.
His promises are ever sure,
And will endure for evermore.

3 God shews his love and grace,
And makes his counsels known;
To save the fallen race,
He sent his only Son:
Who bled and died upon the tree,
To ransom us and set us free.

4 His spirit from above,
For Jesu's sake is giv'n!
Who fills our hearts with love,
And fits our souls for heav'n!
His blessed gifts are then applied,
And we shall then be sanctified.

5 What more should God bestow
To all the human race,
While they live here below,
Than to enjoy his grace;
Such grace as can cause man to be
Happy to all eternity.
