1 Who can forbear to sing,
Who can refuse to praise,
When Zion’s high celestial king
His saving power displays?
2 When sinners at His feet,
By mercy conquered, fall;
When grace, and truth, and justice meet,
And peace unites them all?
3 When that terrific law
Which, from the blazing mount,
Filled Israel’s trembling camp with awe,
Shows a discharged account?
4 When the sweet Gospel found,
The silver trump of Heav’n.
Proclaim, to contrite souls around,
That all their sin’s forgiv’n?
5 When Heav’n’s expanding gates
Invite the pilgrims’ feet,
And Jesus, at their entrance, waits
To place them on His seat?
6 Who can forbear to praise
Our high celestial king,
When sovereign, rich, redeeming grace,
Invites our tongues to sing?
