Lyrics

We shall walk with Him in white,
In that coun­try pure and bright,
Where shall en­ter naught that may de­file;
Where the day-beam ne’er de­clines,
For the bless­èd light that shines
Is the glo­ry of a Sav­ior’s smile.

Refrain

Beautiful robes, beau­ti­ful robes,
Beautiful robes we then shall wear;
Garments of light, love­ly and bright,
Walking with Je­sus in white,
Beautiful robes we shall wear.

We shall walk with Him in white,
Where faith yields to bliss­ful sight,
When the beau­ty of the King we see;
Holding con­verse full and sweet,
In a fel­low­ship com­plete;
Waking songs of ho­ly me­lo­dy.

Refrain

We shall walk with Him in white,
By the foun­tains of delight,
Where the Lamb His ran­somed ones shall lead,
For His blood shall wash each stain,
Till no spot of sin re­main,
And the soul for­ev­er­more is freed.

Refrain
