1. Saints in glory, we together
Know the song that ceases never;
Song of songs Thou art, O Savior;
All that endless day.

2. Come, ye angels, round us gather,
While to Jesus we draw nearer;
In His throne He’ll seat for ever
Those for whom He died.

3. Underneath His throne a river,
Clear as crystal, flows for ever,
Like His fullness, failing never:
Hail, enthronèd Lamb!

4. Oh, the unsearchable Redeemer!
Shoreless ocean, sounded never!
Yesterday, today, for ever,
Jesus Christ, the same.
