Hymn/Song Information

Now let us raise our cheerful strains




Now let us raise our cheerful strains,
And join the blissful choirs above;
There our exalted Saviour reigns,
And there they sing his wondrous love.


While seraphs tune the immortal song,
Oh, may we feel the sacred flame;
And every heart, and every tongue,
Adore the Saviourís glorious name!


Jesus, our Lord, upon the tree,
In agony and shame expired;
Because our curse he grieved to see,
Because our triumph he desired.


Jesus has died that we might live,
Died in the wretched traitorís place;
Oh, what returns can sinners give
For such immeasurable grace;


Yet, though thy goodness so divine
Surpasses all our love and praise,
Jesus, may all our hearts be thine,
And may we serve thee all our days.
