Representative Text

1 As the distant streams uniting,
To the ocean onward move,
So our songs of joy are blending
With the songs of those above.

Rolling onward, sweeping downward,
At the golden gate they meet;
Songs from earth and songs in glory
Break as one, at Jesus’ feet.

2 ‘Tis the chorus of an army
Doing battle for the Lord,
‘Tis the echo of the martyrs
Who have conquered thro’ His word. [Refrain]

3 ‘Tis the chorus of the faithful
Pressing on to win the prize,
‘Tis the anthem of the millions
Gathered safe beyond the skies. [Refrain]

4 May the praise that now is offered
From his holy place of prayer,
Rise to heaven, and sweetly mingle
With the songs of angels there. [Refrain]
