Hymn/Song Information

Who are these like stars appearing These




Who are these like stars appearing,
These before Godís
throne who stand?
Each a golden crown is wearing;
Who are all this glorious band?
Alleluia! Hark, they sing,
Praising loud their heavínly King.


Who are these of dazzling brightness,
These in Godís own truth arrayed,
Clad in robes of purest whiteness,
Robes whose luster neíer shall fade,
Neíer be touched
by timeís rude hand?
Whence come all
this glorious band?


These are they who have contended
For their Saviorís honor long,
Wrestling on till life was ended,
Following not the sinful throng;
These who well the fight sustained,
Triumph through
the Lamb have gained.


These are they
whose hearts were riven,
Sore with woe and anguish tried,
Who in prayer full oft have striven
With the God they glorified;
Now, their painful conflict oíer,
God has bid them weep no more.


These, like priests,
have watched and waited,
Offering up to Christ their will;
Soul and body consecrated,
Day and night to serve Him still:
Now in Godís most holy place
Blest they stand before His face.


---Alternative verses---


These, the almighty contemplating,
did as priests before him stand,
Soul and body always waiting,
Day and night at His command:
Now in Godís most holy place
Blest they stand before His face.
