Verse 1
How bright these glorious spirits shine! 
Whence all their white array? 
How came they to the blissful seats 
of everlasting day? 
Verse 2
Lo! these are they from sufferings great 
who came to realms of light, 
and in the blood of Christ have washed 
those robes that shine so bright. 
Verse 3
Now with triumphal palms they stand 
before the throne on high, 
and serve the God they love amidst 
the glories of the sky. 
Verse 4
Hunger and thirst are felt no more, 
nor sun with scorching ray: 
God is their sun, whose cheering beams 
diffuse eternal day. 
Verse 5
The Lamb, who dwells amid the throne, 
shall o'er them still preside, 
feed them with nourishment divine, 
and all their footsteps guide. 
Verse 6
In pastures green he'll lead his flock 
where living streams appear; 
and God the Lord from every eye 
shall wipe off every tear.
