Come, Christians, Join to Sing

Representative Text

1 Come, Christians, join to sing
Alleluia! Amen!
loud praise to Christ our King;
Alleluia! Amen!
Let all, with heart and voice,
before His throne rejoice;
praise is His gracious choice:
Alleluia! Amen!

2 Come, lift your hearts on high;
Alleluia! Amen!
let praises fill the sky;
Alleluia! Amen!
He is our Guide and Friend;
to us He'll condescend;
His love shall never end:
Alleluia! Amen!

3 Praise yet our Christ again;
Alleluia! Amen!
life shall not end the strain;
Alleluia! Amen!
On heaven's blissful shore
His goodness we'll adore,
singing forevermore,
Alleluia! Amen!
