1 I see the shining domes afar,
I hear the ransomed singing;
Above the jarring notes of earth
Their golden harps are ringing.

Sing on, sing on, ye ransomed throng,
Ye starry host, before Him!
Cast down your crowns at Jesus’ feet!
Let all the heav’ns adore Him.

2 Beyond the ever silent stars,
Beyond death’s dark, deep river,
There is a house not built with hands,
Where we shall rest forever. [Chorus]

3 I long to join that ransomed throng,
Their bliss and glory sharing,
The Saviour’s seal upon my brow,
His robes of beauty wearing. [Chorus]

4 Yes, whom the Lord hath lov’d and own’d,
Your sweetest anthems bringing,
Come join the glad, immortal song
The hosts of heav’n are singing. [Chorus]
