1Awake, and sing the song
Of Moses and the Lamb!
Wake every heart and every tongue
To praise the Savior’s Name.
2Sing of His dying love!
Sing of His rising power!
Sing how He intercedes above
For those whose sins He bore!
3Sing on your heavenly way!
Ye ransomed sinners, sing!
Sing on, rejoicing every day
In Christ, the Eternal King!
4Soon shall we hear Him say,
“Ye blessèd children, come.”
Soon will He call you hence away,
And take His wanderers home.
5There shall our raptured tongue
His endless praise proclaim,
And sweeter voices swell the song
Of glory to the Lamb. Amen.

Hebrews4:14-1614 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. 15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
