Representative Text

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

Refrain:
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]
