Who Are These Robed In White


Who are these, robed in white, who in glory appear,
Countless throngs from the east and the west-
With bright palms in their hands, and their robes snowy white?
Whence come they to mansions of rest?

Refrain:
They shall hunger no more, they shall thirst no more,
Neither faint in the sun’s burning ray;
And the Lamb of God, in the midst of the throne,
Shall wipe their tears away. [Refrain]

Up through sorrow and tears they have battled their way,
These are they who have conquered the foe;
And their robes they have washed in the blood of the Lamb,
And now they are white as the snow. [Refrain]

Through earth’s deserts they’ve come, through the fire and the flame,
With strong arms they have breasted the flood;
Day and night by His throne, in His temple they serve,
And bathe in the glory of God. [Refrain]
