Hymn/Song Information

Who are these like stars appearing These

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

Who are these of dazzling brightness,
These in God’s own truth arrayed,
Clad in robes of purest whiteness,
Robes whose luster ne’er shall fade,
Ne’er be touched
by time’s rude hand?
Whence come all
this glorious band?

These are they who have contended
For their Savior’s 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 o’er,
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 God’s 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 God’s most holy place
Blest they stand before His face.
