O Happy Day When We Shall Stand ~ Hymn

O Happy Day When We Shall Stand

O happy day when we shall stand
Amid the heavenly throng,
And sing with hosts from every land
The new celestial song,
The new celestial song.

O blessèd day from far and near
The servants of the Lord
Shall meet His ransomed children there
Who heard God’s saving Word,
Who heard God’s saving Word.

O what a mighty, rushing flood
Of love without surcease
Shall surge about the throne of God
In joy and endless peace,
In joy and endless peace!

Lord, may Thy bounteous grace inspire
Our hearts to watch and pray,
That we may join the heavenly choir
Upon that glorious day,
Upon that glorious day.

Words: Wilhelm A Wexels, 1846.

I love a great old hymn that causes me to head to the dictionary to look up a word I haven’t seen before. Guess what word I looked up. I’m sure you’ll be able to. Blessings…
