304: SOON the saints in glory singingby Thomas Kelly (1769-1854)
1 SOON the saints in glory singing,
Will with joy exalt the Lamb;
All in heaven their tribute bringing,
Raising high the Saviour's name.
2 To us now the earnest's given;
Here by grace these themes belong;
Let us sing the song of heaven;
'Tis our everlasting song.
3 See how God has now enthroned Him
At His own right hand in heaven;
There the heavenly hosts have owned Him
Lord, to whom all power is given.
4 Endless life in Him possessing,
Let us praise His glorious name:
Glory, honour, power, and blessing,
Be for ever to the Lamb.
