1 We gather, we gather, dear Jesus to bring
The breathings of love ’mid the blossoms of Spring;
Our Maker, Redeemer, we gratefully raise
Our voices in singing thy praise.
Hallelujah! to the Lamb that was slain,
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
For he liveth again,
To intercede for me.
2 When stooping to earth from thy brightness of heav’n
Thy blood for our ransom so freely was giv’n;
With pleasure thou listened when children adored,
In joyful hosannas the Lord. [Refrain]
3 Those arms which embraced little children of old,
Still love to encircle the lambs of the fold;
That grace which inviteth the wanderer home,
Will never forbid us to come. [Refrain]
