552. 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.
Hosanna, Hosanna,
Rejoice, give thanks and sing.

2 Sing till we feel our hearts
Ascending with our tongues;
Sing till the love of sin departs
And grace inspires our songs.
Hosanna, Hosanna,
Rejoice, give thanks and sing.

3 You pilgrims on the road
To Zion's city, sing;
Rejoice now in the Lamb of God,
On Christ, the eternal King.
Hosanna, Hosanna,
Rejoice, give thanks and sing.

4 There shall each rapturous tongue
His endless praise proclaim,
And sing in sweeter notes the song
Of Moses and the Lamb.
Hosanna, Hosanna,
Rejoice, give thanks and sing.

5 Then let our songs abound
And let our tears be dry;
We're marching through Emmanuel's ground,
To fairer worlds on high.
Hosanna, Hosanna,
Rejoice, give thanks and sing.
