The Psalms And Hymns Of Isaac Watts by Isaac Watts

HYMN 30 Heavenly joy on earth.

S. M.

Heavenly joy on earth.

Come, we that love the Lord,

And let our joys be known;

Join in a song with sweet accord,

And thus surround the throne.

[The sorrows of the mind

Be banished from the place;

Religion never was designed

To make our pleasures less.]

Let those refuse to sing

That never knew our God;

But favorites of the heav'nly King

May speak their joys abroad.

[The God that rules on high,

And thunders when he please,

That rides upon the stormy sky,

And manages the seas;]

This aweful God is ours,

Our Father and our Love;

He shall send down his heav'nly powers

To carry us above.

There we shall see his face,

And never, never sin;

There, from the rivers of his grace,

Drink endless pleasures in.

Yes, and before we rise

To that immortal state,

The thoughts of such amazing bliss

Should constant joys create.

[The men of grace have found

Glory begun below;

Celestial fruits on earthly ground

From faith and hope may grow.]

The hill of Zion yields

A thousand sacred sweets,

Before we reach the heav'nly fields,

Or walk the golden streets.

Then let our songs abound,

And every tear be dry;

We're marching through Immanuel's ground

To fairer worlds on high.
