575. Come, We That Love the Lord

1 Come, we that love the Lord,
and let our joys be known;
join in a song with sweet accord,
and thus surround the throne.

Refrain:
Hosanna! Hosanna!
Rejoice, give thanks, and sing!

2 Sing till we feel our hearts
ascending with our tongue,
sing till the love orf sin departs,
and grace inspires our songs: (Refrain)

3 Ye pilgrims on the road
to Zion's city, sing;
rejoice ye in the Lamb of God,
in Christ th'eternal King: (Refrain)

4 There shall each raptured tongue
his endless priase proclaim,
and sing in sweeter notes the song
of Moses and the Lamb: (Refrain)

5 Then let our songs abound
and let our tears be dry;
we're marching through Emmanuel's ground
to fairer worlds on high! (Refrain)
