Representative Text

When our toiling here is o’er and we cross the tide,
Where with Jesus we shall be on the other side;
We shall sing upon that shore,
Praising Him for evermore,
When we gather ‘round the great white throne.

Chorus:
We shall gather ‘round the throne,
We shall worship at His feet,
In a fellowship complete,
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
When we gather ‘round the great white throne.

Oh, the joys that there await! never more we’ll roam,
When at last within the gate of our Father’s home;
With the glorified we’ll sing
Praises to our Savior King,
When we gather ‘round the great white throne.

There our lov’d ones we will meet and we’ll part no more,
There we’ll share communion sweet on that blissful shore;
There from sin and sorrow free,
We with Christ shall ever be,
When we gather ‘round the great white throne.

Let us then to Christ be true with a heart of love,
Ever pointing by our lives to that home above;
That when storms of life are past,
We shall reach that home at last,
And be gather’d ‘round the great white throne.
