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.
