COME, and let us sweetly join

By A Collection of Hymns

      1 COME, and let us sweetly join
      Christ to praise in hymns divine!
      Give we all, with one accord,
      Glory to our common Lord;
      Hands, and hearts, and voices raise;
      Sing as in the ancient days;
      Antedate the joys above,
      Celebrate the feast of love.

      2 Strive we, in affection strive;
      Let the purer flame revive,
      Such as in the martyrs glowed,
      Dying champions for their God:
      We, like them, may live and love;
      Called we are their joys to prove,
      Saved with them from future wrath,
      Partners of like precious faith.

      3 Sing we then in Jesu's name,
      Now as yesterday the same;
      One in every time and place,
      Full for all of truth and grace:
      We for Christ, our Master, stand,
      Lights in a benighted land:
      We our dying Lord confess;
      We are Jesu's witnesses.

      4 Witnesses that Christ hath died,
      We with him are crucified;
      Christ hath burst the bands of death,
      We his quickening Spirit breathe;
      Christ is now gone up on high,
      Thither all our wishes fly;
      Sits at God's right hand above;
      There with him we reign in love!
