With A Sweeter Music Golden Harps Are Ri


With a sweeter music golden harps are ringing,
Welcome tidings echo thro’ the mansions bright;
Higher swells the anthem, heav’n’s choir is singing,
For among the angels there is joy tonight.

Refrain:
Praise the name of Jesus, there is joy in heav’n,
Over souls from sin and darkness, coming into light;
Souls into the kingdom come with sins forgiven,
And among the angels there is joy tonight.

Hardened hearts are yielding to the Spirit’s pleading,
Sinners gladly enter mercy’s open door;
While angelic heralds with the news are speeding,
Thro’ the shining city on the other shore. [Refrain]

From the ways of evil, weary feet are turning,
Spirits long in blindness, now are finding sight;
For the Father’s pardon wand’ring ones are yearning,
And o’er souls repenting, saints rejoice tonight. [Refrain]

Highest praise and glory to the Love Eternal,
Souls from danger bringing safe into the fold;
Happy earthly voices join the hymn supernal,
Sung where hands celestial strike the harps of gold. [Refrain]
