Stanza Poetry Source by First Line
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!


Great Redeemer, friend of sinners,, Stanza 3
Brethren, see my Jesus coming,, Stanza 3
Hail the blessed Lamb,
Glory to His name.
