A HYMN FOR TODAY – Come, Christians, Join to Sing

A HYMN FOR TODAY

Come, Christians, join to sing –
Alleluia! Amen!
Loud praise to Christ our King –
Alleluia! Amen!
Let all, with heart and voice,
Before His throne rejoice;
Praise is His gracious choice.
Alleluia! Amen!

Come, lift your hearts on high!
Alleluia! Amen!
Let praises fill the sky!
Alleluia! Amen!
He is our Guide and Friend;
To us He’ll condescend;
His love shall never end.
Alleluia! Amen!

Praise yet our Christ again –
Alleluia! Amen!
Life shall not end the strain –
Alleluia! Amen!
On heaven’s blissful shore
His goodness we’ll adore,
Singing forevermore,
“Alleluia! Amen!”
