196. Come Let Us Sing the Matchless Worth

8,8,6, bis.

1
Come let us sing the matchless worth,
 
And sweetly sound the glories forth
 
Which in the Saviour shine:
 
To God and Christ our praises bring:
 
The song with which high heaven will ring,
 
"Praises for grace divine."
“For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell.” (Colossians 1:19)
“In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” (Colossians 2:3)
2
How rich the precious blood He spilt,
 
Our ransom from the dreadful guilt
 
Of sin against our God;
 
How perfect is the righteousness,
 
In which unspotted, beauteous dress
 
His saints have ever stood!
“But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.” (1 Peter 1:19)
“Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.” (1 Timothy 2:6)
“For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.” (Mark 10:45)
“And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.” (Revelation 19:8)
3
How rich the character He bears,
 
And all the form of love He wears,
 
Exalted on the throne;
 
In songs of sweet, untiring praise,
 
We e'er would sing His perfect ways,
 
And make His glories known.
4
And soon the happy day shall come,
 
When we shall reach our destined home,
 
And see Him face to face;
 
Then with our Saviour, Lord and Friend,
 
The one unbroken day we'll spend
 
In singing still His grace.
