279. Lo! Round the Throne, a Glorious Band

1 Lo! Round the throne, a glorious band,
the saints in countless myriads stand,
of every tongue redeemed to God,
arrayed in garments washed in blood.
Alleluia!

2 Through tribulation great they came;
they bore the cross, despised the shame;
from all their labours now they rest,
in God's eternal glory blest.
Alleluia!

3 They see their Saviour face to face,
and sing the triumphs of God's grace;
and day and night they ceaseless praise,
to Christ the loud thanksgiving raise:
Alleluia!

4 "Worthy the Lamb, for sinners slain,
through endless years to live and reign;
thou hast redeemed us by thy blood,
and made us royal priests to God."
Alleluia!
