Golden harps are sounding,

Angel voices sing,

Pearly gates are opened,

Opened for the King;

Jesus, King of glory,

Jesus, King of love,

Is gone up in triumph,

To his throne above.

All his work is ended,

Joyfully we sing,

Jesus hath ascended!

Glory to our King!

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!

Pleading for his children

In that blessèd place,

Calling them to glory,

Sending them his grace;


His bright home preparing,

Faithful ones, for you;

Jesus ever liveth

Ever loveth too.
