250. By the Sea of Crystal

1 By the sea of crystal
saints in glory stand,
myriads in number,
drawn from every land.
Robed in white apparel,
washed in Jesus' blood,
they now reign in heaven
with the Lamb of God.

2 Out of tribulation,
death, and Satan's hand,
they have been translated,
at the Lord's command.
In their hands they're holding
palms of victory.
Hark! the jubilant chorus
shouts triumphantly.

3 "Unto God Almighty,
sitting on the throne,
and the Lamb, victorious,
be the praise alone."
God has wrought salvation;
he did wondrous things.
Who shall not extol thee,
holy King of kings!
