Our warfare will soon be accomplished,
Its triumph we soon shall behold,
Eternity’s veil will be lifted,
And Eden its beauty unfold.

Refrain

Our warfare will soon be accomplished,
Before the white throne we shall stand,
And sing hallelujah forever,
With harps and with palms in our hands.

Our warfare will soon be accomplished,
Our armor we soon shall resign,
And go, with our trophies, to Jesus,
Like stars in His kingdom to shine.

Refrain

Our warfare will soon be accomplished,
The dawn of its ending we see,
Already our souls are enraptured
With visions of what we shall be.

Refrain

The Master our place is preparing,
And soon from His lips will be heard
The blessèd Well done, O ye faithful,
Now enter the joy of your Lord.
