All thanks to the Lamb Who gives us to meet




All thanks to the Lamb,
Who calls us to meet!
His love we proclaim,
His praises repeat;
We own him our Jesus,
Continually near
To pardon and bless us,
And perfect us here.


In him we have peace,
In him we have power,
Preserved by his grace
Throughout the dark hour,
In all our temptation
He keeps us to prove
His utmost salvation,
His fulness of love.


Through pride and desire
Unhurt we have gone,
Through water and fire
In him we went on;
The world and the devil
Through him we o'ercame,
Our Saviour from evil,
For ever the same.


When we would have spurned
His mercy and grace,
To Egypt returned,
And fled from his face,
He hindered our flying,
(His goodness to show)
And stopped us, by crying,
"Will ye also go?"


O what shall we do
Our Saviour to love?
To make us anew, Come,
Lord, from above!
The fruit of thy passion,
Thy holiness give,
Give us the salvation
Of all that believe.


Pronounce the glad word,
And bid us be free:
Ah! Hast Thou not, Lord,
A blessing for me?
The peace Thou hast given
This moment impart,
And open Thy heaven
Of love in my heart.


Come, Jesus, and loose
The stammerer's tongue,
And teach even us
The spiritual song;
Let us without ceasing
Give thanks for thy grace,
And glory, and blessing,
And honour, and praise.

His praises repeat;
We own him our Jesus,
Continually near
To pardon and bless us,
And perfect us here.
