Come, We that Love the Lord
Words by Isaac Watts (1674-1748)
Tune: ST. THOMAS from Aaron Williams’ New Universal Psalmodist (1731-1776)
Key signature: F major (1 flat)
1. Come, we that love the Lord, And let our joys be known; Join in a song with sweet accord, And thus surround the throne.
2. Let those refuse to sing, Who never knew our God; But children of the heav’nly King May speak their joys abroad.
3. The hill of Zion yields A thousand sacred sweets Before we reach the heav’nly fields Or walk the golden streets.
4. Then let our songs abound, And ev’ry tear be dry; We’re marching through Immanuel’s ground To fairer worlds on high.
