254. 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.
