  1. Wer sind die vor Gottes Throne
    • Lo! A Multitude Appearing
    • What Is This Host That Round the Throne
    • Who Are These in Dazzling Brightness?
    • Who Are These in Light Adoring?
    • Who Are These, Like Stars Appearing?
    • Who Are Those, Before God’s Throne?
    • Who Are Those, Round God’s Throne Standing?
