206. Come let us join our cheerful songs

1 Come let us join our cheerful songs
with angels round the throne;
ten thousand thousand are their tongues,
but all their joys are one.

2 Worthy the Lamb that died, they cry,
to be exalted thus!
Worthy the Lamb! our lips reply,
for he was slain for us!

3 Jesus is worthy to receive
all praise and power divine;
and all the blessings we can give
with songs of heaven combine.

4 Let all who live beyond the sky,
the air and earth and seas
unite to lift his glory high
and sing his endless praise!

5 The whole creation join in one
to bless the sacred name
of him who reigns upon the throne,
and to adore the Lamb!
