29. We Shall See the King in Beauty

1 When the everlasting portals
Shall their golden doors unfold,
We shall see the King in beauty,
Then His glory we’ll behold.

We shall praise with ransom’d powers
Where the angel voices ring,
We shall wear our blood-wash’d garments,
And redemption’s chorus sing.

2 Oh, the mighty, mighty chorus,
How ‘twill thrill in yonder throng,
When we sing the love of Jesus
In the everlasting song. [Refrain]

3 How we’ll glow with joyful rapture
That our praise was half so sweet,
When we dwelt in earthly houses
Where the chosen ones did meet. [Refrain]

4 Praise the Lord with all your living,
In the courts below give praise,
We shall see the King in beauty,
And adore thro’ endless days. [Refrain]
