Hymn/Song Information

Come we who love the Lord And let our joys be




Come, we that love the Lord,
And let our joys be known;
Join in a song with sweet accord,
And thus surround the throne.


The sorrows of the mind
Be banished from the place;
Religion was never designed
To make our pleasures less.


Let those refuse to sing
That never knew our God:
But children of the heavenly King
May speak their joys abroad.


The God that rules on high,
And thunders when he please,
That rides upon the stormy sky,
And manages the seas;


This aweful God is ours,
Our Father and our Love;
He shall send down his heav'nly powers
To carry us above.


There we shall see his face,
And never, never sin;
There, from the rivers of his grace,
Drink endless pleasures in.


Yes, and before we rise
To that immortal state,
The thoughts of such amazing bliss
Should constant joys create.


The men of grace have found
Glory begun below;
Celestial fruits on earthly ground
From faith and hope may grow.


The hill of Zion yields
A thousand sacred sweets,
Before we reach the heavenly fields,
Or walk the golden streets.


The let our songs abound,
And every tear be dry;
We're marching through Immanuel's ground
To fairer worlds on high.




---Alternative verses---


Come, we who love the Lord,
And let our joys be known;
Join in a song with sweet accord,
And thus surround the throne.


Let those refuse to sing
Who never knew our God:
But favourites of the heavenly King
May speak their joys abroad.
