1 Long ago the prophets told
Of the time we now behold,
When the glorious church or city of our God
Would upon a mountain stand,
As a light to all the land,
And to it the nations all would flow together.

Together, together,
We were raised up together from the miry clay of sin,
And we dwell now together, every heart to heart akin;
We in heav’nly places sit,
For we’re framed and joined and knit,
In the love of Christ our Savior together.

2 From the loathsome plains of sin,
Where our suff’ring souls had been
Held in bondage under Satan’s tyrant sway,
To the mount of holiness,
High above unrighteousness,
Jesus’ love has gathered all of us together. [Refrain]

3 We’re the temple of the Lord,
Built together on His word,
And our Father in His temple ever dwells;
We will walk together here,
In His love and godly fear,
And our voices shall exalt His name together. [Refrain]

4 In this temple of our God
We’re admitted through the blood
Which the Savior shed to cleanse and make us whole,
Then we’re “lively stones” indeed,
Conqu’rors through the holy seed,
And are pillars in the church of God forever. [Refrain]

5 Of the church of God alone
Jesus is the “Corner stone,”
And the standard is the plumbline of His word;
With His Spirit as our guide
Who has come with us to ’bide—
Sanctified, the light, the truth we see together. [Refrain]

6 There are many souls in sin,
Jesus seeks to bring them in;
Let us work together with the Lord today:
Then when all the work is done,
And He comes to claim His own,
We’ll be caught up in the clouds with Him together. [Refrain]
