1. Come now with joy and singing,
Loud hallelujahs ringing,
Our grateful tribute bringing
To our almighty Friend;
Offering with purest pleasure,
To Him the heart’s full treasure,
Whose love no thought can measure,
Whose praise shall never end.

We sing with exultation,
Lord God of our salvation;
Thou art our sure Foundation,
Our Refuge evermore.

2. When to this Refuge flying,
Turn sinners, helpless, dying,
On Christ alone relying,
No harm can reach them there;
When floods of grief are dashing,
And waves of sorrow splashing,
Light to the soul comes flashing—
God’s smile through dark despair. [Refrain]

3. In waking or in sleeping,
Bright days, or nights of weeping,
Our souls are in Thy keeping
While here we wait below;
In Thee alone abiding,
And in Thy love confiding,
Safe when Thy hand is guiding,
We’ll ever gladly go. [Refrain]
