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.

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

O come, let us unite and sing

O come, let us unite and sing

Author: John Barnard
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1. O come, let us unite, and sing
Unto Jehovah's name;
The praise of our salvation's rock,
With joy, aloud proclaim.
2 With grateful thanks, before him come;
And joyful hymns loud sing.
3. Because Jehovah's a great God;
O'er all gods a great King.

4. The earth's deep caverns, lofty hills,
Are in his sovereign hand.
5. His is the sea, which he hath made,
His hands formed the dry land.
6. Come, let us worship, and bow down,
Before our maker kneel.
7. For he's our God, and we his sheep,
He doth us feed, and heal.

8. Today, if ye will hear his voice,
O grow not hard, as they
In desert did, on Meribah's,
And Moffa's woeful day.
9. Your fathers did me tempt, and prove;
My works shone in their face.
10. I, forty years, was grieved with
That stubborn, faithless race.

11. I said, this people err in heart,
My ways they will not know;
To them I swore, in wrath if they
Into my rest should go.
