HYMN 209. 215

How bright these glorious spirits shine!

Whence all their white array? How came they
^ .._ ^ ^ ,_^ .. I
to the blissful seats, Of everlasting clay? Lo!
^"mjy_LjLi-M
these are they from sulFerings great, Who came
to realms of light. And in the blood of Christ

have washed. Those i-obes which shine so bright.
2 Now with triumphal palms they stand,
Before the throne on high,
And serve the God they love, amidst
The glories of the sky.
His presence fills each heart with joy.
Tunes every mouth to sing;
By day, by night, the sacred courts,
With glad hosannahs ring.
3 Hunger and thirst are felt no more.
Nor suns with scorching ray;
God is their Sun whose cheering beams.
Diffuse eternal day.
The Lamb which dwells amidst the throne.
Shall o'er them still preside;
Feed them with nourishment divine,
And all their footsteps guide.
