Hymn/Song Information

Come let us lift our joyful eyes Up to the courts




Come, let us lift our joyful eyes
Up to the courts above,
And smile to see our Father there
Upon a throne of love.


Once 'twas a seat of dreadful wrath,
And shot devouring flame
Our God appeared "consuming fire,"
And Vengeance was his name.


Rich were the drops of Jesus' blood
That calmed his frowning face,
That sprinkled o'er the burning throne,
And turned the wrath to grace.


Now we may bow before his feet,
And venture near the Lord;
No fiery cherub guards his seat,
Nor double-flaming sword.


The peaceful gates of heavenly bliss
Are opened by the Son;
High let us raise our notes of praise,
And reach the almighty throne.


To thee ten thousand thanks we bring,
Great Advocate on high;
And glory to the eternal King,
That lays his fury by.

Come, let us bow before his feet,
And venture near the Lord;
No fiery cherub guards his seat,
Nor double-flaming sword.


To thee ten thousand thanks we bring,
Great Advocate on high;
And glory to the eternal King,
That lays his anger by.
