Hark, I Hear the Harps Eternal

May 2, 2008

Hark, I hear the harps eternal

Ringing on the farther shore,

As I near those swollen waters,

With their deep and solemn roar.


Hallelujah, hallelujah,

Hallelujah, praise the Lamb.

Hallelujah, hallelujah,

Glory to the Great I Am!


And my soul tho’ stained with sorrow,

Fading as the light of day,

Passes swiftly o’er those waters

To that city far away.


Some have cross’d before us safely

To that land of perfect rest.

Can you hear them singing faintly

In the mansion of the blest?


Mighty Jesus, bear us over,

There to kneel before Thy throne.

May we join the saints forever

Praising Thee, and Thee alone.
