10913. Redeemed By The Blood

1 John saw upon Patmos, a vision so bright;
The saints from all nations in garments of light,
With palms and rejoicing before the white throne,
They gave all the glory to Jesus alone.

Redeemed by the blood; redeemed by the blood;
Arrayed in white garments, redeemed by the blood.

2 Salvation and honor and wisdom and might
And glory and blessing, their voices unite,
Ascribing to Jesus, the Lamb that was slain,
Soon coming in glory, forever to reign. [Refrain]

3 A few from the honored, and noble by birth,
The most had been humble or outcasts on earth;
Transformed by the Spirit, their anthems they bring,
And adoring their Savior, united they sing. [Refrain]

4 From great tribulation they hither repair;
And victors forever, God’s glory they share;
From sword and from scaffold, from dungeon and stake,
Naught ever could move them their Lord to forsake. [Refrain]

5 For this they are honored, and serve day and night,
And nearest the throne they rejoice in His light;
They hunger no more, by the Lamb they are fed;
By Him to the fountain of waters are led. [Refrain]

6 Their tears are all banished, God wipes them away,
Enthroned in His presence forever they stay;
What reward and what honor for service so small!
One hour of such blessing repays them for all. [Refrain]
