WHO are these arrayed in white,

Brighter than the noon-day sun,

Foremost of the sons of light,

Nearest the eternal throne?

These are they that bore the cross-

Nobly for their master stood-

Sufferers in his righteous cause-

Followers of the dying Lord.

Out of great distress they came-

Washed their robes by faith below

In the blood of yonder Lamb,

Blood that washes white as snow.

Therefore are they next the throne-

Serve their Maker day and night:

God resides among his own-

God doth in his saints delight.

More than conquerors at last,

Here they find their trials o'er;

They have all their sufferings passed-

Hunger now and thirst no more.

No excessive heat they feel

From the sun's directer ray:

In a milder clime they dwell-

Region of eternal day.

He that on the throne doth reign,

Them the Lamb shall always feed-

With the tree of life sustain-

To the living fountains lead.

He shall all their sorrows chase-

All their wants at once remove,

Wipe the tears from every face-

Fill up every soul with love.
