Representative Text

1 When at last we see the King and His praise in glory sing,
What a day of victory that will be!
When we reach the other side where the faithful shall abide,
What a day of victory that will be!

Refrain:
What a day of victory, victory, victory!
What a day of victory that will be!
When hosannas glad we sing in the palace of the King,
What a day of victory that will be!

2 When we walk the streets of gold with the happy saints of old,
What a day of victory that will be!
When we join the angel-throng in the everlasting song,
What a day of victory that will be! [Refrain]

3 When with trials truly past we receive the crown at last,
What a day of victory that will be!
When before the King we stand in that everlasting land,
What a day of victory that will be! [Refrain]
