1. Disciples of Christ,
Ye friends of the Lamb,
Attend and assist
In singing His fame;
Eternal thanksgiving
The faithful should pay,
The living, the living,
As we do this day.

 

2. A body of clay
He humbly put on,
And then took away
The sin we had done;
And in it endured
The wrath to us due,
The curse we incurred,
Our stripes and our woe.

 

3. Not only He died,
But also arose,
Laid weakness aside,
And ever His foes
(Sin, death, and the Devil)
He triumphed o’er,
And every evil,
Dominion and power.

 

4. O merciful Lamb,
Who sits on the throne,
We bow at Thy name,
We count Thee alone
Deserving our blessing,
And blessing we’ll give,
Without ever ceasing,
So long as we live.
