THE SONG OF SONGS




Come, let us sing the song of songs—
The angels first began the strain—
The homage which to Christ belongs;
“Worthy the Lamb, for He was slain!”


Youth in its prime, and failing age,
With hearts and voices swell the strain,
To cheer their steps on pilgrimage,
“Worthy the Lamb, for he was slain!”


Slain to redeem us by His blood,
To cleanse from every sinful stain,
And make us kings and priests to God:
“Worthy the Lamb, for He was slain!”


To Him Who suffered on the tree,
Our souls, at His soul’s price, to gain,
Blessing, and praise, and glory be:
“Worthy the Lamb, for He was slain!”


To Him, enthroned by filial right,
All power in Heaven and earth proclaim,
Honour, and majesty, and might:
“Worthy the Lamb, for He was slain!”


Come, Holy Spirit, from on high,
Our faith, our hope, our love sustain,
Living to sing, and dying cry,
“Worthy the Lamb, for he was slain!”


Long as we live, and when we die,
And while in Heaven with Him we reign,
This song our song of songs shall be:
“Worthy the Lamb, for He was slain!”


---Alternative verses---


Come let us sing the song of songs,
The song which saints in glory sing;
The homage which to Christ belongs,
Today let babes and sucklings bring.


Come, let us sing the song of songs—
The saints in heaven began the strain—
The homage which to Christ belongs;
“Worthy the Lamb, for He was slain!”


Yea, in eternity of bliss,
If called through grace with him to reign,
Our song —our song of songs, be this,
“Worthy the Lamb, for he was slain!”
