1 I saw around the throne
A throng no man could number,
I saw around the throne
A throng no man could number,
I saw around the throne
A throng no man could number,
And I said, “Who are they?”

Refrain:
“These are they who came out of great tribulation,
These are they who came out of great tribulation,
“These are they who came out of great tribulation,
And have wash’d their robes white in the Blood of the Lamb.”

2 I saw some people there
I thought would never get there,
I saw some people there
I thought would never get there,
I saw some people there
I thought would never get there,
And I said, “Who are they?” [Refrain]

3 I saw some soldiers there
Who bore no scars of battle,
I saw some soldiers there
Who bore no scars of battle,
I saw some soldiers there
Who bore no scars of battle,
And I said, “Who are they?” [Refrain]

4 I saw the martyrs there
Who pass’d thro’ fiery trials,
I saw the martyrs there
Who pass’d thro’ fiery trials,
I saw the martyrs there
Who pass’d thro’ fiery trials,
And I said, “Who are they?” [Refrain]
