788. Thanks Be to God

Refrain:
Thanks be to God!
He gives us the victory
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

1 Blessed are they who washed their robes
and have made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
They are before the throne of God and serve him,
and serve him day and night in his temple. [Refrain]

2 Never will they hunger or thirst;
the sun will not beat upon them,
For the Lamb will be their shepherd;
he will lead them to springs of living water. [Refrain]

3 Blessed are they who washed their robes
and have made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
He who sits on the throne will spread his tent over them,
and then their God will wipe away ev’ry tear from their eyes. [Refrain]
