Let Us Love and Sing and Wonder

Let us love and sing and wonder;
Let us praise the Saviour's name!
He has hushed the law's loud thunder,
He has quenced Mount Sinai's flame:
He has washed us with his blood,
He has washed us with his blood,
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 has washed us with his blood,
He has washed us with his blood.
He presents our souls to God.

Let us sing, though fierce temptations
Threaten hard to bear us down!
For the Lord, our strong salvation
Holds in view the the conqu'or's crown:
He who washed us with his blood,
He who washed us with his blood,
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,
He who washed us with his blood,
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 has washed us with thy blood,
Thou has washed us with thy blood,
Thou has washed us with thy blood,
Thou are worthy, Lamb of God!"

 - John Newton
