1 one harmonious cheerful song,
Ye happy saints, combine;
Loud let it sound from every tongue,
The Savior is divine.
2 The least, the feeblest of the sheep
To Him the Father gave;
Kind is His heart the charge to keep,
And strong His arm to save.
3 In Christ th’almighty Father dwells,
And Christ and He are One;
That rebel power which Christ assails,
Attacks th’eternal throne.
4 That hand, which Heav’n and earth sustains,
And bars the gates of hell,
And rivets Satan down in chains,
Shall guard His chosen well.
5 Now let th’infernal lion roar,
How vain his threats appear!
When he can match Jehovah’s power,
I will begin to fear.
