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!”
