Representative Text

1 From the tow’ring hills that rise
Far beyond the glowing skies,
Hark! the everlasting song
Like an ocean rolls along.

Day and night they shout and sing,
Praise the Lord, our mighty King!
Tell His wondrous love with loud acclaim,
Hallelujah! praise His name!

2 There the saints of ev’ry time,
Ev’ry nation, tongue and clime,
Gather round their loving Lord,
More than conqu’rors thro’ His word. [Refrain]

3 They who on the field of life
Overcome thro’ toil and strife,
By the tranquil stream that flows,
Rest in peace and calm repose. [Refrain]

4 Thro’ the furnace they who passed,
Tried as gold and pure at last,
Anchored now within the vale,
Sing of faith that cannot fail. [Refrain]

5 When our march of life is o’er,
When we wake to sleep no more,
May we join that blissful throng,
There to learn their holy song. [Refrain]
