477. 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
our honor and our praise,
and blessings, more than we can give,
let ev'ry nation raise.

4 Let all creation join in one
to bless the sacred name
of him who sits upon the throne,
and to adore the Lamb.
