1 Come, let us join our souls to God
In everlasting bands,
And seize the blessings he bestows,
With eager hearts and hands.
2 Come, let us to his temple haste,
And seek his favor there;
Before his footstool humbly bow,
And pour our fervent prayer.
3 Come, let us seal, without delay,
The covenant of his grace;
Nor shall the years of distant life
Its memory efface.
4 Thus may our rising offspring haste
To seek their fathers' God;
Nor e'er forsake the happy path
Their fathers' feet have trod.
