MELCHISEDEC




Thou dear Redeemer, dying Lamb,
We love to hear of Thee;
No music’s like Thy charming name,
Nor half so sweet can be.


Oh, may we ever hear Thy voice
In mercy to us speak!
And in our Priest we will rejoice,
Thou great Melchisedek.


Our Jesus shall be still our theme
While in the world we stay;
We’ll sing our Jesus—lovely name!
When all things else decay.


When we appear in yonder cloud,
With all the ransomed throng,
Then will we sing more sweet, more loud,
And Christ shall be our song.


---Alternative verses---


Oh, may I ever hear Thy voice
In mercy to me speak!
And in my Priest I will rejoice,
Thou great Melchisedek.


My Jesus shall be still our theme
While in the world I stay;
I’ll sing our Jesus—lovely name!
When all things else decay.


When I appear in yonder cloud,
With all the ransomed throng,
Then will I sing more sweet, more loud,
And Christ shall be my song.
