LET earth and heaven agree,

By A Collection of Hymns

      4-6s & 2-8s.
      1 LET earth and heaven agree,
      Angels and men be joined,
      To celebrate with me
      The Saviour of mankind;
      To adore the all-atoning Lamb,
      And bless the sound of Jesu's name.

      2 Jesus, transporting sound!
      The joy of earth and heaven;
      No other help is found,
      No other name is given,
      By which we can salvation have;
      But Jesus came the world to save.

      3 Jesus, harmonious name!
      It charms the hosts above;
      They evermore proclaim
      And wonder at his love;
      'Tis all their happiness to gaze,
      'Tis heaven to see our Jesu's face.

      4 His name the sinner hears,
      And is from sin set free;
      'Tis music in his ears,
      'Tis life and victory;
      New songs do now his lips employ,
      And dances his glad heart for joy.

      5 Stung by the scorpion sin,
      My poor expiring soul
      The balmy sound drinks in,
      And is at once made whole:
      See there my Lord upon the tree!
      I hear, I feel, he died for me.

      6 O unexampled love!
      O all-redeeming grace!
      How swiftly didst thou move
      To save a fallen race!
      What shall I do to make it known
      What thou for all mankind hast done?

      7 O for a trumpet voice,
      On all the world to call!
      To bid their hearts rejoice
      In him who died for all;
      For all my Lord was crucified,
      For all, for all my Saviour died!
