Let us Love and Sing and Wonder

Weekend's here! Am happy after having had to do 8 days straight. Here's the song that's been stuck in my head for the last few days - John Newton set to new music by Laura Taylor, as featured on the album Indelible Grace III: For All the Saints. It was also covered by Jars of Clay on their Redemption Songs album. Band featured here is an Asian-American Christian group, I believe.


Let us love and sing and wonder
Let us praise the Savior's name
He has hushed the law's loud thunder
He has quenched Mount Sinai's flame

2. Let us love the Lord Who bought us
Pitied us when enemies
Called us by His grace and taught us
Gave us ears and gave us eyes
He has washed us with His blood
He has washed us with His blood
He has washed us with His blood
He presents our souls to God

3. Let us wonder grace and justice
Join and point to mercy's store
When through grace in Christ our trust is
Justice smiles and asks no more
He Who washed us with His blood
He Who washed us with His blood
He Who washed us with His blood
Has secured our way to God

4. Let us praise and join the chorus
Of the saints enthroned on high
Here they trusted Him before us
Now their praises fill the sky
Thou hast washed us with Thy blood
Thou hast washed us with Thy blood
Thou hast washed us with Thy blood
Thou art worthy Lamb of God

Words: John Newton
Music: Laura Taylor
