1071. You Ought to Sing

1 Jesus Christ has come to set the captive free,
He died to take away death’s sting;
His blood as a ransom He gave for thee,
Then praise to Him you ought to sing.

Refrain:
You ought to sing to the Lamb
Who has washed us in His blood;
He’s our Lord and our King;
To His name you ought to sing.

2 Jesus came our sorrows and our griefs to bear,
What love divine, oh, praise His name;
He says, “Cast on Me all thy load of care,”
Then praise to Him you ought to sing. [Refrain]

3 Sinner, come to Jesus and be saved today,
His blood can cleanse the crimson stain;
He’s ready to wash all your sins away;
Then praise to Him you ought to sing. [Refrain]

4 If you will be faithful through this pilgrim land,
And live to glorify His name,
You’ll find a sweet welcome at His right hand;
Then praise to Him you ought to sing. [Refrain]
