Christ My Song - 1316

Come praise the Lord, exalt his name
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Come praise the Lord, exalt his name.

"Hallelujah."

1. Come praise the Lord, exalt his name,
  our Saviour and our King;
'tis meet we should his love proclaim,
  and hallelujah sing.

2. The theme is high, the work is sweet;
  your harps for concert string:
'tis blessed thus in love to meet,
  and hallelujah sing.

3. How great, how precious is his name!
  How poor the praise we bring!
His people still should own his claim,
  and hallelujah sing.

4. Sustained by faith, and upward borne,
  as if on eagle's wing,
we praise our Lord, forget to mourn,
  and hallelujah sing.

5. A day will come, its dawn we greet,
  when heav'n itself shall ring;
when all the saints with joy shall meet,
  and hallelujah sing.

Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 220.
