Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Adoring Jesus

O come let us join, Together combine

Published in 8 hymnals

Representative Text

1 O come let us join,
Together combine;
To praise our dear Savior, our Master divine.
Him let us adore,
Who cover'd with gore,
Late hanged on Calvary, Both wounded and poor,
Late hanged on Calvary, Both wounded and poor.

2 He worthy is bless'd,
By spirits at rest,
Who once in this Desart his Godhead confess'd,
The heavenly Spheres,
Who saw him in tears,
Yea every Arch Angel, his person reveres,
Yea every Arch Angel, his person reveres.

3 The Prophets who told
His Sufferings of old,
Sing now sweet Thanksgiving on Psalt'ries of Gold.
The Fathers to whom
He seow'd he would come,
Now in his Pavilion take up their long Home,
Now in his Pavilion take up their long Home.

4 The Spirits of Men,
Who for him were slain,
From Abel the Righteous, share now in his Reign.
The Apostles who stood,
Resisting to Blood,
For Jesus's Gospel, rejoice in their God,
For Jesus's Gospel, rejoice in their God.

5 The Confessor's too,
Them prostrating low,
Cast down their bright Mitres, and thankfully bow.
O Church of the Lamb,
Here met do the same,
With Saints, and with Angels, bless Jesus's Name.

6 My soul bear a Part,
For ransom'd thou art,
By Jesu's Blood-shedding, his Burial, and Smart.
To him that was slain,
The scorn'd Nazarene,
Be Glory and Blessing, let all say, Amen,
Be Glory and Blessing, let all say, Amen.
