1 Join, all who love the Saviour's name,
To sing his everlasting fame:
Great God, prepare each heart and voice,
In him for ever to rejoice.
2 Of him what wondrous things are told!
In him what glories I behold!
For him I gladly all things leave;
To him, my soul, for ever cleave.
3 In him my treasure's all contain'd,
In him my feeble soul's maintain'd;
From him what favors I receive!
Through him I shall for ever live!
4 With him I daily love to walk;
Of him my soul delights to talk;
On him I cast my ev'ry care;
Like him I shall one day appear.
5 Bless him, my soul, from day to day;
Trust him to lead thee on thy way;
Give him thy poor, weak, sinful heart;
With him, O never, never part.
6 Take him for strength and righteousness;
Make him thy refuge in distress;
Love him above all earthly joy,
And him in every thing employ.
7 Praise him in cheerful, grateful songs;
To him your highest praise belongs!
Bless him who doth your heav'n prepare,
And whom you'll praise for ever there.
