Representative Text

1 Children of Zion, sing the new song,
Praises to Jesus in gladness prolong;
Him that hath loved us, praise with the voice,
Washed from our sins, in freedom rejoice.

Beautiful songs, beautiful songs,
Sung by the angels in heaven above;
Beautiful songs, beautiful songs,
Beautiful songs of redeeming love.

2 Christ our Redeemer, Saviour and Friend,
Points to a home where joys never end;
Here on the earth is conflict and woe,
Sing with the heart as onward we go. [Chorus]

3 Children of promise, heirs to a King,
Loud let hosannas gratefully ring;
Paid is the ransom bought with his blood,
Songs of redemption sing unto God. [Chorus]
