1 Come, let us join our songs of praise
To our ascended Priest;
He entered Heaven with all our names
Engraven on His breast.
2 Below He washed our guilt away,
By His atoning blood;
Now He appears before the throne,
And pleads our cause with God.
3 Clothed with our nature still, He knows
The weakness of our frame,
And how to shield us from the foes
Which He Himself o’ercame.
4 Nor time, nor distance, e’er shall quench
The fervor of His love;
For us He died in kindness here,
For us He lives above.
5 Oh! may we ne’er forget His grace,
Nor blush to bear His name;
Still may our hearts hold fast His faith—
Our lips His praise proclaim.
