Representative Text

1 In the far better land of glory and light,
The ransomed are singing in garments of white;
The harpers are harping, and all the bright train
Sing the song of redemption, the Lamb that was slain.
The Lamb, the Lamb, the Lamb that was slain,
The Lamb, the Lamb, the Lamb that was slain.

2 Like the sound of the sea swells their chorus of praise,
Round the star circled crown of the Ancient of Days,
And thrones and dominions re-echo the strain
Of the glory eternal, to Him that was slain.
To Him, to Him, to Him that was slain,
To Him, to Him, to Him that was slain.

3 Dear Savior, may we with our voices so faint,
Sing the chorus celestial with angel and saint?
Oh, yes! we will sing, and Thine ear we will gain
In the song of redemption, the Lamb that was slain.
The Lamb, the Lamb, the Lamb that was slain,
The Lamb, the Lamb, the Lamb that was slain.

4 Now, children, and teachers, and friends all unite,
In a loud hallelujah with the ransomed in light;
To Jesus we’ll sing that melodious strain,
The song of redemption, the Lamb that was slain.
The Lamb, the Lamb, the Lamb that was slain,
The Lamb, the Lamb, the Lamb that was slain.
