1 The Church triumphant in thy love,
Their mighty joys we know;
They sing the Lamb in hymns above,
And we in hymns below.
2 Thee in thy glorious realm they praise,
And bow before thy throne;
We in the kingdom of thy grace:
The kingdoms are but one.
3 The holy to the holiest leads,
From hence our spirits rise,
And he that in thy statutes treads
Shall meet thee in the skies.Source: The New English Hymnal #198
The Church triumphant in Thy love. This, in The English Hymnal, 1906, is a cento from C. Wesley's "Happy the souls to Jesus joined," sts. ii.-iv., p. 1262, i. 115.
