Lyrics

Come, all ye people,
Come join with saints and angels;
Sound forth the praises
Of Christ our Lord, once crucified.
Sing of His glory,
His Gospel preach in every land
Till all the nations shall crown Him
King eternal.
Speak of His love,
Of His love for all mankind;
Tell how He loved, how He died,
How He lives and reigns forevermore.
Speak of His love,
Of His love for all mankind;
Tell how He loved, how He died,
How He lives and reigns forevermore.
Praise we the Lord,
Tho’ a host should encamp against us;
In His love, by His power,
He shall save us—
His name shall we praise forever.
Praise we the Lord,
Tho’ a host should encamp against us;
In His love, by His power,
He shall save us—
His name shall we praise forever.
Blessèd forever
Is the Lord of our salvation.
Praise Him, men and angels,
Sing His praise forevermore.
Praise Him; bow before His throne,
Victor over death, He dies no more.
Reign, Thou mighty Savior,
Reigning now in glory,
Reign evermore;
Blessèd forever
Is the Lord of our salvation.
Praise Him, men and angels,
Sing His praise forevermore.
Praise Him; bow before His throne,
Victor over death, He dies no more.
Reign, Thou mighty Savior,
Reigning now in glory,
Reign forevermore.
