1 Hark, the song the redeemed are singing!
Thro’ the heavenly arches ringing!
“Blessing, honor, glory and dominion be unto the Lamb!”
In his wonderful love he sought us!
By his death on the cross he bought us!
And to heaven in his mercy brought us! “Glory to his name!”

Sing we of his salvation,
From sin and condemnation!
Now we, his throne surrounding,
Saved thro’ his mercy and grace abounding,
His praise forever sounding,
Shall worship him our glorious King!

2 Once the lowliest of the lowly,
He, the holiest of the holy,
Came to earth to bring to us the gospel of the Father’s Grace!
Here he taught us the way to glory!
In his life lived the wondrous story
Of the love that serves e’en unto death to a fallen race! [Refrain]

3 Sing we now the Redeemer’s glory!
Gladly telling the wondrous story
Until all the nations of the earth have heard the message sweet!
Then, thro’ Grace, in his holy heaven
Where glad homage by angels given,
We shall thro’ a blest eternity the song of praise repeat. [Refrain]
