1. 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!
2. 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!
3. 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!” Come, Christians, Join to Sing
