On Earth The Song Begins

by Joseph Swain (1761-1796)

Tune: Fairford

Tune: Fairford
* Verse 2 then 1 :-S

1 ON earth the song begins;
In heaven more sweet and loud ---
"To Him that cleansed our sins
By His atoning blood;
To Him," we sing in joyful strain,
"Be honour, power, and praise, Amen."

2 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.

Lovely family singing. Is there any way these can be collectively grouped?

That piano! Someone call for Winifred Atwell. She could make something of it!

If you click on the 'Family-Singing-1' next to 'Set' then it will give you a list of them. I'll back that link more obvious.
