Hymn/Song Information

Come ye people raise the anthem




Come, ye faithful, raise the anthem,
Cleave the skies with shouts of praise;
Sing to Him Who found a ransom,
Ancient of eternal days,
God of God, the Word Incarnate,
Whom the heaven of heaven obeys.


Ere He raised the lofty mountains,
Formed the seas, or built the sky,
Love eternal, free, and boundless,
Moved the Lord of Life to die,
Foreordained the Prince of Princes
For the throne of Calvary.


There, for us and our redemption,
See Him all His life blood pour!
There He wins our full salvation,
Dies that we may die no more;
Then, arising, lives forever,
Reigning where He was before.


High on yon celestial mountains
Stands His sapphire throne, all bright,
Midst unending alleluias
Bursting from the sons of light;
Sionís people tell His praises,
Victor after hard won fight.


Yet this earth he still remembers,
Still by Him the flock are fed;
Yea, He gives them food immortal,
Gives himself, the living bread;
Leads them where
the precious fountain
From the smitten rock is shed.


Trust Him, then, ye fearful pilgrims;
Who shall pluck you from His hand?
Pledged He stands for your salvation,
Leads you to the promised land.
O that we, with all the faithful,
There around his throne may stand!


Bring your harps,
and bring your incense,
Sweep the string and pour the lay;
Let the earth proclaim His wonders,
King of that celestial day;
He the Lamb once slain is worthy,
Who was dead and lives for ay.


Laud and honor to the Father,
Laud and honor to the Son,
Laud and honor to the Spirit,
Ever Thee and ever One,
Consubstantial, co-eternal,
While unending ages run.


---Alternative verses---


Come, ye people, raise the anthem,
Cleave the skies with shouts of praise;
Sing to Him Who found a ransom,
Ancient of eternal days,
God of God, the Word Incarnate,
Whom the heaven of heaven obeys.


Now on those eternal mountains
Stands the sapphire throne, all bright,
With the ceaseless alleluias
Which they raise, the sons of light;
Sionís people tell His praises,
Victor after hard won fight.
