46. "The New Song"

Chorus:
Wait a little while,
Then we'll sing the New Song;
Wait a little while,
Then we'll sing the New Song.

1. When the great Jubilee shall come,
Then we'll sing the New Song;
And Christ shall take his ransom'd home,
Then we'll sing the New Song. [Chorus]

2. When the long night of sin shall close,
Then we'll sing the New Song;
And life's fair day shall end our woes,
Then we'll sing the New Song. [Chorus]

3. When the glad shout shall rend the sky,
Then we'll sing, etc.
"O grave, where is thy victory?"
Then we'll sing, etc. [Chorus]

4. When sorrow, pain and death are o'er,
Then we'll sing, etc.
And sighs and tears shall be no more,
Then we'll sing, etc. [Chorus]

5. When to the pearly gates we come,
Then we'll sing, etc.
When we have reached our blissful home,
Then we'll sing, etc. [Chorus]

6. When we shall tread Life's river brink,
Then we'll sing, etc.
And of those crystal waters drink,
Then we'll sing, etc. [Chorus]

7. Where all will be immortal, fair,
There we'll sing the New Song;
When blood-washed robes are ours to wear,
Then we'll sing the New Song. [Chorus]
