THE SERVICE OF SONG

You who have known redemption's grace,
Rejoice and sing with one accord
To Christ, who brought you to this place:
Intone hosannahs to the Lord!

You who know love the Spirit shed,
In hearts where He has come to dwell,
Have your affections freshly led
To sing unto the Springing Well.

The Father's presence may amaze:
Yet here through grace His sons belong,
Where Christ the Leader of the praise
Declaims that Name in joyful song.

Yet we discern a greater voice
Since love can rest in love's results:
Hear God, who sees His saints, rejoice
For His own voice of song exults.
