1 Come ye Lovers of the Lamb,
Praise the great almighty name;
To your God your songs begin,
To the Lamb your bleeding King.
2 Jesus, thee we honours give;
Live Almighty Jesus, live;
Thou hast penn'd our songs with blood,
Thee we hail, incarnate God.
3 We were laden once with sin,
But the Lamb hath made us clean;
We, who once in darkness lay,
Now behold eternal day.
4 Strangers once and far from God,
Now brought home by Jesu's blood,
Shining in our wedding dress,
In the Lord, our righteousness.
5 Poor, and low, we once did lie,
Full of wants, and sore oppress'd;
Jesus now hat rais'd us high,
All our Grievances redress'd.
6 Deeply sinking once in hell,
Without hope, and without God;
Now our tongues can greatly tell,
We are sav'd by Jesu's blood.
7 Freely we are sav'd by grace,
Heart and Hand we this embrace;
This below, fills ev'ry tongue
This above, is all the song.
8 Praises still to Christ we sing,
Christ our Prophet, Priest, and King;
Living waters in us flow,
Glory is begun below.Source: Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual Songs: selected and original, designed for the use of the Church Universal in public and private devotion #V
