Representative Text

1 Oh, sing once again the old story,
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
We’re ripening, we’re ripening for glory,
Hallelujah to the Lamb.

Praise God, we are ripening for glory,
’Neath the dews and the sun of his love;
Praise God, we are ripening for glory,
And shall rest in his garners above.

2 We are saved from the blasts of repining,
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
While the sun of his mercy is shining,
Hallelujah to the Lamb. [Refrain]

3 On his glorious promises leaning,
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Like a shock fully ripe for the gleaning,
Hallelujah to the Lamb. [Refrain]

4 We long for the glorified vision,
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
A glimpse of the garner’s elysian,
Hallelujah to the Lamb. [Refrain]

5 When safe in the garners of glory,
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
The angels will sing the old story,
Hallelujah to the Lamb. [Refrain]
