COME, let us ascend,

By A Collection of Hymns

      5 5 9, 5 5 9.
      1 COME, let us ascend,
      My companion and friend,
      To a taste of the banquet above;
      If thy heart be as mine,
      If for Jesus it pine,
      Come up into the chariot of love.

      2 Who in Jesus confide,
      We are bold to outride
      The storms of affliction beneath;
      With the prophet we soar
      To the heavenly shore,
      And outfly all the arrows of death.

      3 By faith we are come
      To our permanent home:
      By hope we the rapture improve:
      By love we still rise,
      And look down on the skies,
      For the heaven of heavens is love.

      4 Who on earth can conceive
      How happy we live,
      In the palace of God, the great King?
      What a concert of praise,
      When our Jesus's grace
      The whole heavenly company sing!

      5 What a rapturous song,
      When the glorified throng
      In the spirit of harmony join:
      Join all the glad choirs,
      Hearts, voices, and lyres,
      And the burden is, "Mercy divine!"

      6 Hallelujah, they cry,
      To the King of the sky,
      To the great everlasting I AM;
      To the Lamb that was slain,
      And liveth again,
      Hallelujah to God and the Lamb!

      7 The Lamb on the throne,
      Lo! he dwells with his own,
      And to rivers of pleasure he leads;
      With his mercy's full blaze,
      With the sight of his face,
      Our beatified spirits he feeds.

      8 Our foreheads proclaim
      His ineffable name;
      Our bodies his glory display;
      A day without night
      We feast in his sight,
      And eternity seems as a day!
