Lyrics

  1. 1. 'Tis sweet to sing the matchless love
    Of Him who left his home above
    And came to earth--oh, wondrous plan--
    To suffer, bleed, and die for man!
  2. 2. 'Tis good to meet each Sabbath day
    And, in his own appointed way,
    Partake the emblems of his death,
    And thus renew our love and faith.
  3. 3. Oh, blessed hour! communion sweet!
    When children, friends, and teachers meet
    And, in remembrance of his grace,
    Unite in sweetest songs of praise.
  4. 4. For Jesus died on Calvary!
    That all thru him might ransomed be.
    Then sing hosannas to his name;
    Let heav'n and earth his love proclaim.
