Hymn/Song Information

How bright these glorious spirits shine Whence all




How bright these glorious spirits shine!
Whence all their white array?
How came they to the blissful seats
of everlasting day?


Lo! these are they from sufferings great
who came to realms of light,
and in the blood of Christ have washed
those robes which shine so bright.


Now with triumphal palms they stand
before the throne on high,
and serve the God they love amidst
the glories of the sky.


His presence fills each heart with joy,
tunes every voice to sing:
by day, by night, the sacred courts
with glad hosannas ring.


Hunger and thirst are felt no more,
nor suns with scorching ray;
God is their sun, whose cheering beams
diffuse eternal day.


The Lamb who dwells amidst the throne
shall o'er them still preside,
feed them with nourishment divine,
and all their footsteps guide.


In pastures green he'll lead his flock
where living streams appear;
and God the Lord from every eye
shall wipe off every tear.


To Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
the God whom we adore,
be glory, as it was, is now,
and shall be evermore.


To him who sits upon the throne,
The God whom we adore,
And to the Lamb that once was slain,
Be glory evermore!


---Alternative verses---


His presence fills each heart with joy,
tunes every voice to sing:
by day, by night, the sacred courts
with glad hosannas ring.


'Mong pastures green he'll lead his flock
where living streams appear;
and God the Lord from every eye
shall wipe off every tear.


Midst pastures green he'll lead his flock
where living streams appear;
and God the Lord from every eye
shall wipe off every tear.
