Saints in glo­ry, we together
Know the song that ceases ne­ver;
Song of songs Thou art, O Sav­ior;
All that endless day.

Come, ye angels, round us gather,
While to Je­sus we draw nearer;
In His throne He’ll seat for ever
Those for whom He died.

Underneath His throne a river,
Clear as crystal, flows for ever,
Like His fullness, failing ne­ver:
Hail, enthronèd Lamb!

Oh, the unsearchable Re­deem­er!
Shoreless ocean, sounded ne­ver!
Yesterday, today, for ever,
Jesus Christ, the same.
