The ar - mies of the ransomed saints Throng up the steeps of light:
2 What rush of Hallelujahs
Then eyes with joy shall sparkle Fills all the earth and sky!
That brimmed with tears of late; What ringing of a thousand harps Orphans no longer fatherless, Bespeaks the triumph nigh!
Nor widows desolate.
4 Bring near Thy great salvation,
Thou Lamb for sinners slain; O joy, for all its former woes
Fill up the roll of Thine elect, A thousand-fold repaid!
Then take Thy power and reign: 3 () then what raptured greetings
Appear, Desire of nations, On Canaan's happy shore;
Thine exiles long for home: What knitting severed friendships Show in the heavens Thy promised up,
sign; Where partings are no more!
Thou Prince and Savior, come!
“For - ev - er with the Lord!” A - men! so let
2 Here, in the body pent,
Absent from Him I roam,
A day's march nearer home.
Home of my soul, how near,
Thy golden gates appear!
To reach the land I love,
Father, if 'tis Thy will,
E’en here to me fulfill.
Then can I never fail;
Fight, and I must prevail.
Shall rend the veil in twain,
And life eternal gain.
How shall I love that word,
J. Montgomery, 1835
