Come, we that love the Lord,
And let our joys be known;
Join in a song with sweet accord,
And thus surround the throne.


Come, we that love the LORD,, Stanza 1

The hill of Zion yields
A thousand sacred sweets,
Before we reach the heav’nly fields,
Or walk the golden streets.


Come, we that love the LORD,, Stanza 9

Then let our songs abound,
And ev’ry tear be dry;
We’re marching thru Immanuel’s ground
To fairer worlds on high.


Come, we that love the LORD,, Stanza 10
