Representative Text

1 “He’s the Chief among ten thousand,”
My Redeemer and my King!
I shall worship and adore Him,
And His praise forever sing.
“He’s the Lily of the valley,”
And the fairest of the fair!
I shall see Him in His glory,
Where the many mansions are.

“He’s the Chief among ten thousand,”
And the fairest of the fair;
I shall see Him in His beauty,
And His image I shall bear.

2 When my earthly course is finished,
And the work of life is done,
When the battle-cry is over,
And the victor’s crown is won;
I shall cast my crown before Him,
I shall walk with Him in white,
Where the silver fountains sparkle,
‘Mid the vales of endless light. [Refrain]

3 I shall see Him in His beauty,
And His hand will wipe away
Every tear of pain and sorrow,
While His gentle voice will say,
“Come, ye blessed of my Father,
To the rest prepared above,”
Where the tree of life is blooming,
In my home of peace and love. [Refrain]
