Hymn/Song Information

Come every joyful heart that loves the




Come every joyful heart,
That loves the Saviour’s name.
Your noblest powers exert
To celebrate His fame:
|:Tell all above and all below,:|
The debt of love to Him you owe.


He left His starry crown,
And laid His robes aside;
On wings of love came down;
And wept, and bled, and died:
|:What He endured
no tongue can tell,:|
To save our souls
from death and hell.


From the dark grave He rose—
The mansion of the dead;
And thence His mighty foes
In glorious triumph led:
|:Up through the sky
the Conqueror rode,:|
And reigns on high,
the Saviour God.


From thence He’ll quickly come—
His chariot will not stay—
And bear our spirits home
To realms of endless day:
|:There shall we see His lovely face,:|
And ever be in His embrace.


Jesus, we ne’er can pay
The debt of love we owe;
Yet grant us day by day
Our gratitude to show;
Our life, our all, to Thee we give,
To Thee, by whom alone we live.

He left His heavenly crown,
And glory laid aside;
On wings of love came down;
And wept, and bled, and died:
|:What He endured
no tongue can tell,:|
To save our souls
from death and hell.
