Hymn 226
7 6 7 6 D
1. Come, all ye sons of Zion,
And let us praise the Lord;
His ransomed are returning,
According to his word.
In sacred songs and gladness,
They walk the narrow way,
And thank the Lord who brought them
To see the latter day.

2. Come, ye dispersed of Judah,
Join in the theme, and sing,
With harmony unceasing,
The praises of your King,
Whose arm is now extended
(On which the world may gaze)
To gather up the righteous,
In these the latter days.

3. Rejoice, rejoice, O Israel!
And let your joys abound;
The voice of God shall reach you
Wherever you are found.
And call you back from bondage,
That you may sing his praise,
In Zion and Jerusalem
In these, the latter days.

4. Then gather up for Zion,
Ye saints, throughout the land,
And clear the way before you,
As God shall give command:
Though wicked men and devils
Exert their power, 'tis vain
Since him who is eternal
Has said you shall obtain.
