Hymns Supplied Through the Gracious Generosity
of the Cyber Hymnal Website

John Stainer (1840-1901)Words: Possibly Rowland Hill (1744-1833); this hymn appeared in the Supplement to his Psalms and Hymns, 1796.

Music: "Rest (Stainer)," John Stainer


We sing his love, Who once was slain,
Who soon o'er death revived again,
That all His saints through Him might have
Eternal conquests o'er the grave.


Soon shall the trumpet sound, and we
Shall rise to immortality.

The saints who now with Jesus sleep
His own almighty power shall keep,
Till dawns the bright illustrious day
When death itself shall die away.


How loud shall our glad voices sing,
When Christ His risen saints shall bring,
From beds of dust and silent clay,
To realms of everlasting day!


When Jesus we in glory meet,
Our utmost joys shall be complete,
When landed on that heavenly shore,
Death and the curse will be no more.


Hasten, dear Lord, the glorious day,
And this delightful scene display,
When all Thy saints from death shall rise
Raptured in bliss beyond the skies.
