Hark! the choirs of angels crying,
 
Glory to the Lamb once slain,
 
None in heaven or earth denying
 
Tribute to the Saviour's name.
Revelation 5:11-15

Ye for whom His life was given,
 
Higher themes to you belong,
 
Wake then here the joy of heaven,
 
Raise the everlasting song.

See how God hath now enthroned Him
 
At His own right hand on high,
 
There the heavenly hosts have owned Him,
 
Filling with His praise the sky.

Filled with blest anticipation,
 
Chant as soon to be above;
 
Sweet the theme—a free salvation,
 
Fruit of everlasting love.

Endless life in Him possessing,
 
Let us praise His glorious name,
 
Glory, honor, power and blessing
 
Be forever to the Lamb.
