COME, let us with a joyful heart

In this blest labor share a part;

Not prayers alone but off'rings bring,

To aid the triumphs of our King.

Our hearts exult in songs of praise,

In hope to see the latter days;

Oh may we not forget to prove

By generous deeds how much we love.

Where'er his hand has spread the skies,

His bounty every need supplies;

Shall we not imitate his grace,

And fill with gifts this favoring place?

A generous heart the Lord approves,

A liberal hand our Saviour loves;

Come, then, you saints, approve his will,

And let your gifts his treas'ry fill.
