Come, Christians Join to Sing

This is a hymn or praise to Christ.  It is based on the first two verses of Psalm 95, and is considered some to be a a remix of William Edward Hickson's "Join Now in Praise, and Sing".

The words were written by English Morovian, Congregational and later Church of England minister and hymn-writer, Christian Henry Bateman (1813-1889), in 1843.  The original wording was "Come Children Join to Sing", but it was adopted as an all-age hymn.

With meter of 6.6.6.6.D, it is almost always set to the tune MADRID, which is a traditional Spanish melody.

Lyrics

Come, Christians, join to sing
Alleluia! Amen!
Loud praise to Christ our King;
Alleluia! Amen!
Let all, with heart and voice,
Before His throne rejoice;
Praise is His gracious choice.
Alleluia! Amen!

Come, lift your hearts on high,
Alleluia! Amen!
Let praises fill the sky;
Alleluia! Amen!
He is our Guide and Friend;
To us He'll condescend;
His love shall never end.
Alleluia! Amen!

Praise yet our Christ again,
Alleluia! Amen!
Life shall not end the strain;
Alleluia! Amen!
On heaven's blissful shore,
His goodness we'll adore,
Singing forevermore,
"Alleluia! Amen!"
