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

Let those refuse to sing
Who never knew our God,
But servants of the heavínly King
May speak their joys abroad.


Come, we that love the LORD,, Stanza 3

The men of grace have found
Glory begun below;
Celestial fruit on earthly ground
From faith and hope may grow.


Come, we that love the LORD,, Stanza 8
