Come, Let Us Join Our Cheerful Songs

Melody - "Gräfenberg", Johann Crüger, 1653
Same as above, later version - Nun danket all', Johann Crüger, 1653; Seq. by Richard Jordan
Alternate melody - Nativity

Isaac Watts; 1707, from Hymns and Spiritual Songs

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
Honor and power divine;
And blessing, more than we can give,
Be, Lord, forever Thine.

4. The whole creation join in one
To bless the sacred Name
Of Him Who sits upon the throne,
And to adore the Lamb.
