Representative Text

1 Poor sinner, come, cast off thy fear,
And raise thy drooping head;
Come, sing with all poor sinners here,
Jesus, who once was dead.

2 Salvation sing, no word more meet
To join to Jesus’ name;
Let every thankful tongue repeat,
“Salvation to the Lamb.”

3 Saints, from the garden to the cross,
Your conquering Lord pursue,
Who, dearly to redeem your loss,
Groaned, bled, and died for you.

4 Now reigns victorious over death
The glorious great I AM;
Let every soul repeat with faith,
“Salvation to the Lamb.”

5 When we incurred the wrath of God –
Alas! what could we worse?
He came, and, with his own heart’s blood,
Redeemed us from the curse.

6 This paschal Lamb, our heavenly meat,
Was roasted in the flame;
Repeat, ye ransomed souls, repeat,
“Salvation to the Lamb.”
