1. When we enter the portals of glory,
And the great host of ransomed we see,
As the numberless sand of the seashore,
What a wonderful sight that will be.

Chorus:
Numberless as the sand of the seashore,
Numberless as the sand, of the shore,
Oh, what a sight 'twill be
When the ransomed host we see,
As numberless as the sand of the seashore.

2. When we see all the saved of the ages
Who from cruel death partings are free,
Greeting there with a heavenly greeting,
What a wonderful sight that will be. [Chorus]

3. When we stand by the beautiful river,
'Neath the shade of the life-giving tree,
Gazing out o'er the fair land of promise,
What a wonderful sight that will be. [Chorus]

4. When we look on the form that redeemed us,
And his glory and majesty see,
While as King of the saints he is reigning,
What a wonderful sight that will be. [Chorus]
