Come let us join our cheerful Songs

CHRIST JESUS the Lamb of GOD, worshipped by all Creation, Rev. v. 11—13.

Poet: Isaac Watts, 1707
Meter: Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
Location in The Sacred Harp
Stanza Denson Cooper
Come let us join our cheerful Songs
With Angels round the Throne;
Ten thousand thousand are their Tongues,
But all their Joys are one.

Rochester 30t, Stanza 1
“Worthy the Lamb that dy’d,” they cry,
“To be exalted thus:”
“Worthy the Lamb,” our Lips reply,
For he was slain for us.

Jesus is worthy to receive
Honour and Pow’r Divine;
And Blessings more than we can give,
Be, LORD, for ever thine.

Let all that dwell above the Sky,
And Air, and Earth, and Seas,
Conspire to lift thy Glories high,
And speak thine endless Praise.

The whole Creation join in one,
To bless the sacred Name
Of Him that sits upon the Throne,
And to adore the Lamb.

Rochester 30t, Stanza 2
