Hymn/Song Information

Lo what a glorious sight appears To our believing




Lo! what a glorious sight appears
To our believing eyes!
The earth and sea are passed away,
And the old rolling skies.


From the third heaven, where God resides,
That holy, happy place,
The new Jerusalem comes down,
Adorned with shining grace.


Attending angels shout for joy,
And the bright armies sing—
“Mortals, behold the sacred seat
Of your descending King.


“The God of glory down to men
Removes His blest abode;
Men, the dear objects of His grace,
And he the loving God.


“His own soft hand shall wipe the tears
From every weeping eye,
And pains, and groans, and griefs, and fears,
And death itself, shall die.”


How long, dear Saviour! O how long
Shall this bright hour delay?
Fly swifter round, ye wheels of time,
And bring the welcome day.


O may we stand before the Lamb,
When earth and seas are fled,
And hear the Judge pronounce our name
With blessings on our head.


---Alternative verses---


Lo! what a glorious sight appears
To our admiring eyes!
The former seas have passes away,
The former earth and skies.


The God of glory down to men
Removes his blest abode;
He dwells with men; his people they,
And he his people's God.


His gracious hand shall wipe the tear
From every weeping eye;
And pains, and groans, and griefs, and fears,
And death itself, shall die.
