Sunday Hymn


Let Us Love and Sing and Wonder

Let us love and sing and wonder, let us praise the Savior’s name.
He has hushed the law’s loud thunder; He has quenched Mount Sinai’s flame.
He has washed us with 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 with His blood; He presents our souls to God.

Let us sing though fierce temptation, threaten hard to bear us down;
For the Lord, our strong salvation, holds in view the conqu’ror’s crown.
He, Who washed us with His blood, soon will bring us home to God.

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 washed us with His blood, has secured our way to God.

Let us praise and join the chorus of 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,1774
