1 When the burden’d heart relents,
How they sing in glory,
When the soul undone repents,
How they sing in glory;
When is heard the weary sigh
And the penitential cry,
“Save me Jesus, or I die,”
How they sing in glory.

2 When they seek for Him who died,
How they sing in glory,
Come to Christ, the Crucified,
How they sing in glory;
All the hosts of heav’n rejoice
Praising God with harp and voice,
When He proves the sinners’ choice,
Christ, the King of glory.

3 Would you help to swell the strain
In the realms of glory,
Come will all your woe and stain,
To the King of glory;
Come, my brother, come today,
Come to Jesus while you may,
He will wash your sins away,
Lead you home to glory.
