Sing with All the Saints in Glory(1) 702 Sing with All the Saints in Glory WORDS: William J. Irons, 1873 (1 Cor. 15:20) 1. Sing with allthe saints in glory,sing the resurrection song!Death and sorrow,earth’s dark story,to the former days belong.
All around theclouds are breaking,soon the stormsof time shall cease;in God’s likenesswe, awaking,know the everlasting peace.
Sing with All the Saints in Glory (2) 2. O what glory,far exceedingall that eye has yet perceived!Holiest hearts,for ages pleading,never that full joy conceived.
God has promised,Christ prepares it,there on highour welcome waits.Every humble spirit shares it;Christ has passedth’eternal gates.
Sing with All the Saints in Glory (3) 3. Life eternal! heaven rejoices:Jesus lives, whoonce was dead.Join we nowthe deathless voices;child of God,lift up your head!
Patriarchs from thedistant ages,saints all longingfor their heaven,prophets, psalmists,seers, and sages,all await the glory given.
Sing with All the Saints in Glory (4) 4. Life eternal! O what wonderscrowd on faith;what joy unknown,when, amidst earth’sclosing thunders,saints shall standbefore the throne!
O to enterthat bright portal,see that glowing firmament;know, with thee,O God Immortal,“Jesus Christwhom thou has sent!”
