Hymn/Song Information

O what the joy and the glory must be




O what their joy
and their glory must be,
Those endless Sabbaths
the blessèd ones see;
Crown for the valiant,
to weary ones, rest;
God shall be all,
and in all ever blessed.


What are the Monarch, His court, a
nd His throne?
What are the peace and the joy
that they own?
O that the blessed ones,
who in it have share,
All that they feel could as fully declare!


Truly, “Jerusalem”
name we that shore,
City of peace
that brings joy evermore;
Wish and fulfillment
are not severed there,
Nor do things prayed for
come short of the prayer.


There, where no troubles
distraction can bring,
We the sweet anthems
of Zion shall sing;
While for Thy grace, Lord,
their voices of praise
Thy blessèd people eternally raise.


There dawns no Sabbath,
no Sabbath is o’er,
Those Sabbath keepers
have one evermore;
One and unending
is that triumph song
Which to the angels
and us shall belong.


Now, in the meanwhile,
with hearts raised on high,
We for that country must yearn
and must sigh;
Seeking Jerusalem, dear native land,
Through our long exile
on Babylon’s strand.


Low before Him
with our praises we fall,
Of Whom, and in Whom,
and through Whom are all;
Of Whom, the Father;
and in Whom, the Son,
Through Whom, the Spirit,
with Them ever One.


---Alternative verses---


O what the joy
and the glory must be,
Those endless Sabbaths
the blessèd ones see;
Crown for the valiant,
to weary ones, rest;
God shall be all,
and in all ever blessed.
