Hymn 68 • Come all ye saints, who dwell on earth
HYMN 68. C. M.
 
1 Come all ye saints, who dwell on earth,
Your cheerful voices raise,
Our great Redeemer’s love to sing,
And celebrate his praise.
 
2 His love is great, he died for us,
Shall we ungrateful be?
Since he has mark’d a road to bliss,
And said, Come follow me.
 
3 The strait and narrow way we’ve found,
Then let us travel on,
Till we in the celestial world,
Shall meet where Christ is gone.
 
4 And there we’ll join the heav’nly choir,
And sing his praise above;
While endless ages roll around,
Perfected by his love.
 
Hymn 69 • God spake the word, and time began
HYMN 69. L. M.
 
1 God spake the word, and time began;
He spake and gave his law to man;
His presence oft did Adam cheer,
Who lov’d the voice of God to hear.
