Representative Text

1 Far away among the angels,
In the sweet celestial bow’rs,
Start the songs whose echoes gladden
As they greet this world of ours.

Refrain:
Hear the echoes filled with glory,
From the bright angelic throng;
Oh, the pure seraphic music
Finds an echo in our song,
While it gently rolls along.

2 How they stir the soul with rapture!
How they thrill the chords of love!
How they wake the songs of praises,
Floating up to worlds above! [Refrain]

3 Far away in worlds of glory,
We can hear the music sweet,
Where the streams of life are flowing
All along the golden street. [Refrain]

4 Far away in fields of glory
We shall meet, and God adore;
And the sweet redemption story
We shall sing forevermore. [Refrain]
