Let Us Love

This coming Sunday we’ll sing this hymn by John Newton, to this tune.

Let us love, and sing, and wonder,
Let us praise the Saviour’s name!
He has hushed the Law’s loud thunder,
He has quenched Mt. Sinai’s flame;
He has washed us in His blood,
He has brought us nigh to God.

Let us love the Lord who bought us,
Pitied us when enemies,
Called us by His grace, and taught us,
Gave us ears, and gave us eyes:
He has washed us in His blood,
He presents our souls to God.

Let us sing, tho’ fierce temptations
Threaten hard to bear us down!
For the Lord, our strong salvation,
Holds in view the conqueror’s crown,
He who washed us in His blood,
Soon will bring us home to God.

Let us wonder; grace and justice
Join, and point to mercy’s store;
When thro’ grace in Christ our trust is,
Justice smiles, and asks no more:
He who washed us in His blood,
Has secured our way to God.

Let us praise, and join the chorus
Of the the saints enthroned on high;
Here they trusted Him before us,
Now their praises fill the sky:
“Thou hast washed us with Thy blood;
Thou art worthy, Lamb of God.”

John Newton (1725-1807)
