Representative Text

1 Come join in the praises of Jesus,
He’s fairer than Sharon’s sweet rose;
‘Twas He tasted death to release us,
‘Tis He that has vanquished our foes.

Oh, come join with us in His praises!
His love while in song we proclaim;
The rapture within us He raises,
May all find alike in His name.

2 Oh, sweet was the day that He found us,
And sweet were the words that He said!
With cords of His love hath he bound us,
And life given us from the dead. [Refrain]

3 But sweeter the rapture to greet Him,
When clad in that vesture of light;
Caught up in the air, we shall meet Him,
Nor go evermore from His sight. [Refrain]
