288. Come, pure hearts, in sweetest measures

8.8.7.8.8.7

Lauda Zion:

Gerard F. Cobb (1838-1904)

Latin cento;

Tr. Robert Campbell, 1850

Come, pure hearts, in sweetest measures

Sing of those who spread the treasures

In the holy Gospels shrined!

Blessed tidings of salvation,

Peace on earth their proclamation,

Love from God to lost mankind.

See the rivers four that gladden,

With their streams, the better Eden

Planted by our Lord most dear;

Christ the fountain, these the waters;

Drink, O Sion's sons and daughters!

Drink, and find salvation here.

O that we, thy truth confessing,

And thy holy word possessing,

Jesus, may thy love adore!

Unto thee our voices raising,

Thee with all thy ransomed praising,

Ever and for evermore.

Amen.
