The saints triumphant rise in bright array;
The King of glory passes on His way. Alleluia!

Soon, soon to faithful warriors cometh rest;

5 And when the strife is fierce, the warfare long,
Steals on the ear the distant triumph-song,

And hearts are brave again, and arms are strong. Alleluia!

8 From earth's wide bounds, from ocean's farthest coast,
Through gates of pearl streams in the countless host,
Singing to Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, Alleluia.

A-men.

1. From ev'ry storm-y wind that blows,From ev-'ry swell-ing tide of woes, 2. There is a place where Jesus sheds The oil of glad-ness on our heads, 3. There is a spot where spirits blend, Where friend holds fellow-ship with friend; 4. There,there, on ea-gle's wing we soar, And time and sense seems all no more,

To bear the cross and shame,
That guilty sinners, such as I,
Might plead Thy gracious name.

Wher-e'er they seek Thee, Thou art found, And ev'ry place is hallowed ground.
Such ev- er bring Thee where they come, And go-ing,take Thee to their home.
Here to our wait-ing hearts pro-claim The sweetness of Thy sav-ing name.
To teach our faint de- sires to rise, And bring all heav'n before our eyes. A-men.
