How oft in holy converse
With Christ, my Lord, alone,
I seem to hear the millions
That sing around His throne:

Refrain

Hallelujah! Amen!
Hallelujah! Amen!
Hallelujah! Amen!
Amen! Amen!

They passed through toils and trials,
And though the strife was long,
They share the victor’s conquest
And sing the victor’s song:

Refrain

My soul takes up the chorus
And, pressing on my way,
Communing still with Jesus,
I sing from day to day:

Refrain

Through grace I soon shall conquer
And reach my home on high;
And through eternal ages
I’ll shout beyond the sky:

Refrain
