Song of Moses and the Lamb. Rev. xv. 3. 1 AWAKE, and sing the song Of Moses and the Lamb; Wake, ev'ry heart and ev'ry tongue, To praise the Saviour's name. 2 Sing of his dying love; Sing of his rising pow'r, Sing, how he intercedes above, For those whose sins he bore. 3 Sing, till we feel our heart Ascending with our tongue; Sing, till the love of sin depart, And grace inspire our song. 4 Sing on your heavn’ly way, Ye ransom'd sinners, sing; Sing on, rejoicing every day, In Christ, th' eternal King. 5 Soon shall we hear him say, “Ye blessed children come;” Soon will he call us hence away, And take his wand’rers home. 6 Soon shall our raptur'd tongue His endless praise proclaim; And sweeter voices tune the song o,#" and the Lamb.
