Raise high the Song

Verse 1:
Our Saviour will descend again,
Earth’s buried millions raising;
With Him will come a glorious train,
Adoring Him and praising.

Refrain:
Raise high the song that loud and long
Before Him ceases never,
Till, casting down each golden crown,
We worship Him forever.

Verse 2:
And though those bodies lie in dust
Before that glad appearing,
Yet shall they stand among the just,
Our Saviour’s image wearing.

Verse 3:
What tho’ earth’s gath’ring tempests lower,
And ages pass in sadness?
Yet we may see that glorious hour,
And hail the dawn with gladness.

Verse 4:
Then, safe at last, this blessed throng,
Set free from tribulation,
Shall ever praise in holy song
The God of our salvation.

Thos. Laurie/J.J. Lowe
