Representative Text

1 Come, Christian youths and maidens,
Come, brothers, old and young,
Uplift your hearts and voices,
Be praise on every tongue.
In God's own House we gather,
Our yearly feast to hold;
Come, join our joyful anthem,
Ye brothers, young and old.

2 Come, sing with us the praises
Of God's preserving care,
Who safe from harm has kept us
Throughout another year;
And crowned our lives with mercies
Unnumbered as the sand,
Which day by day have reached us
From His all-gracious Hand.

3 Come, sing with us the praises
Of God's Redeeming Love,
That song which never ceases
Around the Throne above;
The voice of many Angels,
"Worthy the Lamb of God;
For He was slain to save us
By His most precious Blood."

4 Come, praise Him for glad tidings
Heard in this hallowed place--
Glad tidings of salvation,
By free and sovereign grace;
For gifts of Holy Scripture,
Known from our childhood's days;
For call from Heaven to serve Him
In wisdom's happy ways.

5 Come, praise Him for the promise
Of strength in weakness given;
For means of grace provided;
For blessed hope of Heaven.
Oh, Christian youths and maidens!
Oh, brothers, old and young!
Uplift your hearts and voices,
And let His praise be sung.
