There Is Glory

Representative Text

1 Travel on, ye soldiers true,
soon the city we shall view,
For the shadows will have flown away;
There is glory here below,
but 'tis greater there, I know,
In the kingdom of unclouded day.

Chorus:
There is glory, there is glory, glory,
For the faithful in this earthly fray;
there's glory, glory, there is endless glory
In the kingdom of unclouded day.

2 Never mind the storm that sweeps,
Christ the Savior safely keeps,
If we feel His touch we shall not stray;
Soon together we shall sing
in the palace of the King,
In the kingdom of unclouded day. [Chorus]

3 Trust His love, whate'er betide,
near His temple safely hide,
By His power we shall win the fray;
Crowns of glory we shall wear,
having bliss beyond compare,
In the kingdom of unclouded day. [Chorus]
