Hymn 72
1. Come, you that love the Savior's name,
And joy to make it known,
The sov'reign of your heart proclaim,
And bow before his throne.

2. Behold your King, your Savior, crowned
With glories all divine;
And tell the wond'ring nations round
How bright those glories shine.

3. Infinite power and boundless grace
In him unite their rays;
You that have seen his lovely face,
Can you forbear his praise?

4. When in his earthly courts we view
The beauties of our King,
We long to love as angels do,
And wish like them to sing.

5. And shall we long and wish in vain?
Lord teach our songs to rise!
Thy love can animate our strain,
And bid it reach the skies.

6. O happy period! glorious day!
When heaven and earth shall raise,
With all their powers, the raptured lay,
To celebrate thy praise.
