THE CHURCH TRIUMPHANT




Myriads of spirits round the throne,
In humble posture stand;
On every head a starry crown,
A palm in every hand.


Envy and strife are banished thence,
And angry passions cease;
They neither give nor take offence,
But all is love and peace.


From different quarters of the globe
These happy spirits came;
In Jesusí blood they washed their robes,
And triumphed in his name.


One glorious body now they make,
More glorious far their Head;
Their souls to rapturous joys awake,
Their sorrows all are fled.


Without a jarring not, they join
In ceaseless songs of praise;
And to the sacred Three in One,
Loud hallelujahs raise.
