1 COME, let us use the grace divine,
And all, with one accord,
In a perpetual covenant join
Ourselves to CHRIST the LORD:
2 Give up ourselves, through Jesu's power,
His name to glorify;
And promise, in this sacred hour,
For GOD to live and die.
3 The covenant we this moment make
Be ever kept in mind:
We will no more our God forsake,
Or cast his words behind.
4 We never will throw off his fear
Who hears our solemn vow:
And if thou art well-pleased to hear,
Come down, and meet us now!
5 Thee, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
Let all our hearts receive;
Present with the Celestial host,
The peaceful answer give!
Which takes our sins away;
And register our names on high,
And keep us to that day!
