Come, come, ye happy, happy saints,
The heav'nly Lamb adore;
Dwell on his everlasting love,
And praise him evermore.

Spread his dear name through all the earth,
Sing his eternal pow'r,
Shout the rich fountain of his blood,
And praise him evermore.

Up to the courts where now he reigns
May all our spirits soar,
Fully survey his mercy-seat,
And praise him evermore.

Hark how the angels chant his name,
See how they all adore;
Triumph and wonder, gaze and sing,
And praise him evermore.

Saints who surround his dazzling throne
Their tuneful voices raise;
Higher than angels bear their songs,
The glorious song of praise.

Come, O my spirit, higher still
Swell the celestial lays:
Higher than all the heights of heav'n
Sound Jesu's endless praise.
