Full Text

1 Above earth’s grief and sighing,
Its want and pain and dying,
Look up and see the glory
Prepared for you and me.

Refrain:
All tears, all tears God shall wipe away,
In the full and perfect day;
Once forever, once forever,
God shall wipe all tears away.

2 The Lamb himself shall feed us,
The Lamb himself shall lead us
To drink from living fountains,
That flow for you and me. [Refrain]

3 No burning sun shall smite us,
His glorious face shall light us;
The beauty of his presence,
It shines for you and me. [Refrain]

4 Though countless hosts before him
With rapture-strains adore him,
Yet in the mighty choral
Are songs for you and me. [Refrain]
