Hymn/Song Information

Come every pious heart That loves the




Come, every pious heart,
That loves the Saviour’s Name,
Your noblest powers exert
To celebrate His fame;
Tell all above, and all below;
That 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, Oh, who can tell?
To save our souls From death and hell.


From the dark grave He rose;
The mansions 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.


Jesus, we ne’er can pay
The debt we owe Thy love;
Yet tell us how we may
Our gratitude approve;
Our hearts, our all to Thee we give;
The gift, though small, Thou wilt receive.


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 we owe Thy love;
Yet tell us how we may
Our gratitude approve;
Our hearts, our all to Thee we give;
The gift, though small, Do thou receive.
