Sunday Hymnary: “Shall Hymns of Grateful Love” by James Cummins, 1839

1 Shall hymns of grateful love
Through heaven’s high arches ring,
And all the host above
Their songs of triumph sing;
And shall not we take up the strain,
And send the echo back again?

2 Shall every ransomed tribe
Of Adam’s scattered race,
To Christ all power ascribe,
Who saved them by His grace;
And shall not we take up the strain,
And send the echo back again?

3 Shall they adore the Lord,
Who bought them with His blood,
And all the love record
That led them home to God;
And shall not we take up the strain,
And send the echo back again?

4 Oh! spread the joyful sound,
The Saviour’s love proclaim,
And publish all around
Salvation through His name;
And shall not we take up the strain,
And send the echo back again?
