We are never, never weary
Of the grand old song;
Glory to God, hallelujah!
We can sing it loud as ever,
With our faith more strong;
Glory to God, hallelujah!

Refrain

O, the children of the Lord
Have a right to shout and sing,
For the way is growing bright,
And our souls are on the wing;
We are going by and by
To the palace of a king!
Glory to God, hallelujah!

We are lost amid the rapture
Of redeeming love
Glory to God, hallelujah!
We are rising on its pinions
To the hills above:
Glory to God, hallelujah!

Refrain

We are going to a palace
That is built of gold;
Glory to God, hallelujah!
Where the King in all His splendor
We shall soon behold
Glory to God, hallelujah!

Refrain

There we’ll shout redeeming mercy
In a glad, new song;
Glory to God, hallelujah!
There we’ll sing the praise of Jesus
With the blood washed throng;
Glory to God, hallelujah!
