675. Oh, What Their Joy

1 Oh, what their joy and their glory must be,
Those endless Sabbaths the blessèd ones see!
Crowns for the valiant, to weary ones rest;
God shall be all, and in all ever blessed.

2 In new Jerusalem joy shall be found,
Blessings of peace shall forever abound;
Wish and fufillment are not severed there,
Nor the things prayed for come short of the prayer.

3 We, where no troubles distraction can bring,
Safely the anthems of Zion shall sing;
While for Your grace, Lord, their voices of praise
Your blessèd people shall evermore raise.

4 Now let us worship our Lord and our King,
Joyfully raising our voices to sing:
Praise to the Father, and praise to the Son,
Praise to the Spirit, to God, Three in One.
