Come let us sing redeeming love

Representative Text

1 Come, let us sing redeeming love,
Blessed be the name of the Lord;
Sing with the raptured hosts above,
Blessed be the name of the Lord.

Lift up the heart, lift up the voice,
Praise ye the Lord, rejoice, rejoice!
Come, let us sing in sweet accord,
Blessed be the name of the Lord.

2 He hid me in the living Rock,
Blessed be the name of the Lord;
And leads me with his happy flock,
Blessed be the name of the Lord. [Chorus]

3 He put this song within my soul,
Blessed be the name of the Lord;
Let heavenly hallelujahs roll,
Blessed be the name of the Lord. [Chorus]
