Dear Savior, we gather, our tribute to bring

Published in 6 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Dear Saviour, we gather our tribute to bring,
The off'rings of love, like the blossoms of Spring;
Our gracious Redeemer! we gratefully raise
Our hearts and our voices to hymn Thy great praise.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hosanna to the Lord!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hosanna to the Lord.

2 When stooping to earth from the brightness of heaven,
Thy blood for our ransom so freely was given,
Thou deignedst to listen while children adored,
With joyful hosannas the Bless'd of the Lord. [Refrain]

3 Those arms which embraced little children of old,
Still love to encircle the lambs of the fold;
That grace which inviteth the wandering home,
Hath never forbidden the youngest to come. [Refrain]

4 Hosanna! Hosanna! Great Teacher, we raise
Our hearts and our voices in hymning Thy praise
For precept and promise to graciously given,
For blessings of earth, and the glories of heaven. [Refrain]
