3 Sweetly swell the solemn sound,
While we bring our gifts around,
Of broken hearts,
As a willing sacrifice,
Showing what his grace imparts.
 
4 Happy type of things to come,
When the saints are gather’d home,
To praise the Lord,
In eternity of bliss,
All as one with one accord.
 
5 Holy, holy is the Lord,
Precious, precious is his word,
Repent and live;
Though your sins are crimson red,
O repent and he’ll forgive.
 
6 Softly sing the joyful lay
For the saints to fast and pray,
As God ordains,
For his goodness and his love
While the Sabbath day remains.
