John Newton – Let Us Love And Sing And Wonder

6 Dec

Praise For Redeeming Love

Let us love, and sing, and wonder,
Let us praise the Saviour’s name!
He has hush’d the law’s loud thunder,
He has quench’d mount Sinai’s flame:
He has wash’d us with his blood,
He has brought us nigh to God.

2 Let us love the Lord who bought us,
Pity’d us when enemies,
Call’d us by his grace, and taught us,
Gave us ears, and gave us eyes:
He has wash’d us with his blood,
He presents our souls to God.

3 Let us sing, though fierce temptations
Threaten hard to bear us down!
For the Lord, our strong salvation,
Holds in view the conqu’ror’s crown:
He who wash’d us with his blood,
Soon will bring us home to God.

4 Let us wonder, grace and justice
Join, and point to mercy’s store;
When through grace in Christ our trust is,
Justice smiles, and asks no more:
He who wash’d us with his blood,
Has secur’d our way to God.

5 Let us praise and join the chorus
Of the saints enthron’d on high;
Here they trusted him before us,
Now their praises fill the sky;
“Thou hast wash’d us with thy blood,
Thou art worthy, Lamb of God!”

6 Hark! the name of Jesus sounded
Loud from golden harps above!
Lord, we blush, and are confounded,
Faint our praises, cold our love!
Wash our souls and songs with blood,
For by thee we come to God.
