714. With Harps and With Viols

1 With harps and with viols, there stand a great throng
In the presence of Jesus, and sing this new song:

Refrain:
Unto him who hath loved us and washed us from sin,
Unto him be the glory for ever. Amen.

2 All these once were sinners, defiled in his sight,
Now arrayed in pure garments in praise they unite: [Refrain]

3 He maketh the rebel a priest and a king,
He hath bought us and taught us this new song to sing: [Refrain]

4 How helpless and hopeless we sinners had been,
If he never had loved us till cleansed from our sin: [Refrain]

5 Aloud in his praises our voices shall ring,
So that others believing, this new song shall sing: [Refrain]
