1 O happy day when we shall stand
Amid the heav'nly throne,
And sing with hosts from ev'ry land
The new celestial song,
The new celestial song.
2 O blessed day! From far and near
The servants of the Lord
Shall meet the ransomed millions there
Who heard God's saving Word,
Who heard God's saving Word.
3 O what a mighty, rushing flood
Of love that will not cease,
Shall roll about the throne of God
In joy and endles peace,
In joy and endless peace!
4 God, may Thy bounteous grace inspire
Our hearts so that we may
All join the heav'nly, white-robed choir
Upon that glorious day,
Upon that glorious day.
