547. 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:

Unto him who hath loved us
and washed us from sin,
unto him be the glory forever. 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]
