298. Who are these in bright array

Eight 7's

St. Edmund (Steggall):

Charles Steggall, 1849

James Montgomery, 1819;


Who are these in bright array,

This innumerable throng,

Round the altar, night and day,

Tuning their triumphant song?

"Worthy is the Lamb, once slain,

Blessing, honour, glory, power,

Wisdom, riches to obtain,

New dominion every hour."

These through fiery trials trod;

These from great affliction came;

Now before the throne of God,

Sealed with his eternal Name;


Clad in raiment pure and white,

Victor palms in every hand,

Through their great Redeemer's might,

More than conquerors they stand.

Hunger, thirst, disease, unknown,

On immortal fruits they feed;

Them the Lamb amidst the throne

Shall to living fountains lead:

Joy and gladness banish sighs;

Perfect love dispels their fears,

And for ever from their eyes

God shall wipe away all tears.
