1
Now begin the heavenly theme;
Sing aloud in Jesus’ name;
Ye who his salvation prove,
Triumph in redeeming love.

2
Ye who see the Father’s grace
Beaming in the Saviour’s face,
As to Canaan on you move,
Praise and bless redeeming love.

3
Mourning souls, dry up your tears;
Banish all your guilty fears;
See your guilt and curse remove,
Cancelled by redeeming love.

4
[Welcome all by sin oppressed,
Welcome to his sacred rest;
Nothing brought him from above,
Nothing but redeeming love.]

5
When his Spirit leads us home,
When we to his glory come,
We shall all the fulness prove
Of our Lord’s redeeming love.

6
[He subdued the infernal powers,
Those tremendous foes of ours;
From their cursèd empire drove,
Mighty in redeeming love.]

7
Hither, then, your music bring;
Strike aloud each cheerful string;
Join, ye saints, the hosts above;
Join to praise redeeming love.
