Who Are These Whose Songs Are Sounding


Who are these, whose songs are sounding
O’er the golden harps above?
Hark! They tell of grace abounding,
And Jehovah’s sov’reign love.

Refrain:
These are they who wash’d their robes
and made them white
in the blood of the Lamb,
These are they who washed their robes
and made them white
in the blood of the Lamb.

Who are these that keep their station
Round the great, eternal throne?”
They from earthly tribulation
To their heav’nly rest are gone. [Refrain]

See the robes of dazzling whiteness,
Without blemish, spot, or stain;
See their crowns that grow in brightness,
Purchased by the Lamb once slain. [Refrain]

‘Tis the Lamb of God who leads them,
And they serve Him night and day;
By the heav’nly fount He feeds them,
He hath wiped their tears away. [Refrain]

Sweet their theme: ’tis still “salvation
Unto Christ the Holy One,”
And their sighs of tribulation
Change to songs around the throne. [Refrain]
