1 At the closing of our days,
At the parting of the ways,
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Christ will take us by the hand,
Welcome us to heav’n’s fair land,
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Refrain:
Hallelujah! crown’d with glory
We shall stand before the King,
Hallelujah! crown’d with glory
We shall stand before the King.

2 When we reach the portals fair
Of God’s palace over there,
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Christ will bid us enter in,
And our life in heav’n begin,
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! [Refrain]

3 In the new Jerusalem,
Crown’d with glorious diadem,
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
We shall stand before the King,
And the song of triumph sing,
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! [Refrain]

4 That will be a time of joy;
Praises shall our tongues employ;
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
As we fall before His feet,
We hosannas shall repeat,
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! [Refrain]
