1 Joyful we in our sabbath home,
Singing songs to the Lamb we come;
Unto Him in a song of praise,
Our happy voices now we raise.

Refrain:
Blessed be the Lamb for sinners slain,
Blessed be the Lamb, we sing again;
Blessed evermore His name shall be,
Who died on Calvary.
Joyful we in our sabbath home,
Singing songs to the Lamb we come;
Unto Him in a song of praise,
Our happy voices now we raise.

2 Little ones in the days of old,
Sang His praise in a measure bold;
So we her in His temple raise
Our tribute in a song of praise. [Refrain]

3 When we meet in the land of love,
When we enter the home above,
Then we’ll join with the ransomed throng,
And evermore His praise prolong. [Refrain]
