LET US LOVE AND SING AND WONDER

John Newton (words), Laura Taylor (music)

Let us love and sing and wonder
Let us praise the Saviour’s name
He has hushed the law’s loud thunder
He has quenched 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
Threatens hard to bear us down
For the Lord, our strong Salvation,
Holds in view the conqu’ror’s crown

He has washed us with His blood
He has washed us with His blood
He has 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 has washed us with His blood
He has washed us with His blood
He has 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 hast washed us with Thy blood
Thou hast washed us with Thy blood
Thou hast washed us with Thy blood
Thou art worthy, Lamb of God
