How bright these glorious spirits shine
How bright these glorious spirits shine,
in all their white array!
How have they come to this fair place
of everlasting day?
2. These have come out of sufferings great
into the realms of light,
and through the blood of Christ the Lamb
their robes are pure and white.
3. Now with victorious palms they stand
before the throne on high,
and serve the God they love, among
the glories of the sky.
4. Hunger and thirst are felt no more,
nor sun with scorching ray;
God is their sun, whose gentle beams
diffuse eternal day.
5. For at the centre of the throne,
Jesus, the Lamb who died,
feeds them with nourishment divine,
their shepherd and their guide.
6. In pastures green he’ll lead his flock
where living streams appear,
and God the Lord from every eye
shall wipe away each tear.
