1 Come, we that love God's name,
and let our joys be known;
Together God's great love proclaim,
and thus surround the throne.
2 Let those refuse to sing
who never knew our God;
But we our thanks and praise will bring
for love so deep and broad.
3 God's grace on earth is found,
the seeds of glory sown;
Celestial fruits on earthly ground
from faith and hope have grown.
4 The hill of Zion yields
a thousand sacred sweets
Before we reach the heavenly fields,
or walk the golden streets.
5 Then let our songs abound,
and every tear be dry;
We're traveling through Emmanuel's ground,
to greater worlds on high.
