See the happy spirits waiting
On the banks beyond the stream;
Sweet responses, still repeating,
Jesus, Jesus is their theme.
See! They whisper; Hark! They call me,
Sister spirit, come away;
Lo! I come, earth can't contain me;
Hail, ye realms of endless day!
Hail, hail, hail, hail, hail, the blessed Lamb,
Glory, glory, glory to His name.
