1 Come and let us lift our hearts in songs of praise
Unto Him who bore our guilt and shame!
All ye ransomed now your voices raise,
Magnify His holy name!

Praise Him! Worship and adore Him!
Praise Him! Magnify His name!
Keep the echoes ringing,
Fill His courts with singing,
Let all earth and Heav’n resound with praises.

2 With the hosts of Heaven lift your songs of love,
Praise the Lamb for sinners crucified;
Fill with notes of joy the courts above,
Sing His praises far and wide. [Refrain]

3 Bless the Lord, all ye who know His matchless worth!
Bless His holy name forevermore!
Let His glory fill all Heav’n and earth,
Sound His praises o’er and o’er. [Refrain]
