Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

469. Come, Let Us Sing the Song of Songs

1 Come, let us sing the song of songs,
with hearts and voices swell the strain,
the homage which to Christ belongs;
"Worthy the Lamb, for he was slain!"

2 Slain to redeem us by his blood,
to cleanse from ev'ry sinful stain,
and make us kings and priests to God;
"Worthy the Lamb, for he was slain!"

3 To him who suffered on the tree
our souls, at his soul’s price, to gain,
blessing, and praise, and glory be,
"Worthy the Lamb, for he was slain!"

4 To him, enthroned by filial right,
all pow'r in heav'n and earth proclaim,
honor, and majesty, and might;
"Worthy the Lamb, for he was slain!"

5 Long as we live, and when we die,
and while in heaven with him we reign,
this song, our song of songs shall be:
"Worthy the Lamb, for he was slain!"
