Representative Text

1 When the everlasting portals
Shall their golden doors unfold,
We shall see the King in beauty,
Then His glory we’ll behold.

Refrain:
We shall praise with ransom’d powers
Where the angel voices ring,
We shall wear our blood-wash’d garments,
And redemption’s chorus sing.

2 Oh, the mighty, mighty chorus,
How ‘twill thrill in yonder throng,
When we sing the love of Jesus
In the everlasting song. [Refrain]

3 How we’ll glow with joyful rapture
That our praise was half so sweet,
When we dwelt in earthly houses
Where the chosen ones did meet. [Refrain]

4 Praise the Lord with all your living,
In the courts below give praise,
We shall see the King in beauty,
And adore thro’ endless days. [Refrain]
