1131. Heavenly Chorus

1 Listen to the heav’nly music
Made by those who never tire,
Wondrous song that has no ending,
Sung by all the angel choir.

Refrain:
They are singing, ever singing,
Over on the other shore;
Soon we’ll join them in the chorus,
When this fleeting life is o’er.

2 Soon we’ll join the choir of glory,
Soon we’ll greet those gone before;
Yes, we’ll meet departed loved ones,
Meet where parting is no more. [Refrain]

3 There we’ll sing, our sorrow over,
On that fair and happy shore,
Where the wicked cease from troubling,
And the weary sigh no more. [Refrain]
