Blest Are The Saints Who Sit On High


Blest are the ones that sit on high,
around your throne of majesty;
your brightest glories shine above,
and all their work is praise and love.

Blest are the ones that find a place
within the temple of your grace;
there they behold your gentle rays,
and seek your face, and learn your praise.

Blest are the ones whose hearts are set
to find the way to heaven’s gate;
You are their strength; along the road
they lean upon their helper, God.

Cheerful they come, with growing strength,
till all shall meet in heaven at length;
before you then shall all appear,
and join in nobler worship there.
