#139: Golden Harps Are Sounding

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Golden harps are sounding, Angel voices ring,

Pearly gates are opened, Opened for the King:

Christ, the King of glory, Jesus, King of love,

Is gone up in triumph To His throne above.

REFRAIN

All His work is ended, Joyfully we sing;

Jesus hath ascended — Glory to our King!

2

He who came to save us, He who bled and died,

Now is crowned with glory At His Father’s side:

Nevermore to suffer, Nevermore to die,

Jesus, King of glory, Is gone up on high.

REFRAIN

3

Praying for His children In that blessed place,

Calling them to glory, Sending them His grace:

His bright home preparing, Faithful ones, for your;

Jesus ever liveth, Ever loveth too.

REFRAIN
