Seventh Sunday of Easter

*Hymn #469: Come, Let Us Sing the Song of Songs

1 Come, let us sing the song of songs,
with hearts and voices swell the strain, the homage which to Christ belongs: “Worthy the Lamb, for he was slain!”

2 Slain to redeem us by his blood,
to cleanse from ev’ry sinful stain,
and make us kings and priests to God; “Worthy the Lamb, for he was slain!”

3 To him who suffered on the tree
our souls, at his soul’s price, to gain,
blessing, and praise, and glory be,
“Worthy the Lamb, for he was slain!”

4 To him, enthroned by filial right,
all pow’r in heav’n and earth proclaim, honor, and majesty, and might; “Worthy the Lamb, for he was slain!”

5 Long as we live, and when we die, and while in heaven with him we reign, this song, our song of songs shall be: “Worthy the Lamb, for he was slain!”
