On Earth The Song Begins

By J. Swain (1761-1796)

Meter: 6.6.6.6.8.8.

On earth the song begins,
In heav'n more sweet and loud:
To Him who cleansed our sins
By His atoning blood,
To Him, we sing in joyful strain,
Be honor, power and praise, Amen.

Alone He bore the cross,
Alone its grief sustained;
His was the shame and loss,
And He the victory gained;
The mighty work was all His own,
Though we shall share His glorious throne.
