4 Join the chorus morning stars began;
love is o'er us, binding all in its span.
O sing the victor's song; joy
leads us sun-ward, in the song of life.
4 O what wonders, O what joy unknown,
when the saints shall stand before the throne!
O see the firmament; know,
"Jesus Christ whom thou, O God, has sent."
