Come, All Ye Saints of Zion


Come, All Ye Saints of Zion


1. Come, all ye Saints of Zion,

And let us praise the Lord;

His ransomed are returning,

According to his word.

In sacred song 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 our 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 thruout the land,

And clear the way before you,

As God shall give command.

Tho wicked men and devils

Exert their pow’r, ’tis vain,

Since He who is eternal

Has said you shall obtain.
