Christ My Song - 1329
Now let us all together sing
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
Now let us all together sing.
"Praise ye the Lord." (Psalm 150,1)
1. Now let us all together sing
the praise of Zion's glorious King;
'tis he who sits on yonder throne,
'tis he who reigns, and reigns alone.
2. Great as he is, his people dare
approach him, and present their prayer;
he hears his people's cry, and grants
a full supply for all their wants.
3. And many are the wants of those
who every step encounter foes:
who nothing of their own possess,
and oft are plunged in deep distress.
4. For such his grace sufficient is;
we need no more; the word is his:
'tis rich with comfort to the poor;
his people should complain no more.
5. Let those who know his glorious name,
his grace and majesty proclaim;
for Zion's King is God alone;
'tis he who sits on yonder throne.
6. To him be praise, for praise is due
to him who died, ye saints, for you:
sweet is the sense of sins forgiven,
but who can tell the joys of heav'n?
Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 185.
