Hark! I Hear the Harps Eternal

Congregational singing
Capitol Hill Baptist Church – Washington, D.C.
Hark! I hear the harps eternal
Ringing on the farther shore,
As I near those swollen waters
With their deep and solemn roar.
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Hallelujah, praise the Lamb!
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Glory to the great I AM!
And my soul, tho’ stain’d with sorrow,
Fading as the light of day,
Passes swiftly o’er those waters,
To that city far away.
Some have crossed before us safely
To that land of perfect rest.
Can you hear them singing faintly
In the mansions of the blest?
Mighty Jesus, bear us over,
There to kneel before Thy throne.
May we join Thy saints forever
Praising Thee, and Thee alone.
