"And they that be wise shall shine as the
brightness of the firmament” - Dan: 12:3

1.  WHO are these like stars appearing
     These before God’s throne who stand  

     Each a golden crown is wearing

     Who are all this glorious band?

     Hallelujah! hark they sing

     Praising loud their heavenly King.

2.  Who are these in dazzling brightness

     Clothed in God's own righteousness

     These, whose robes of purest whiteness

     Shall their lustre still possess

     Still untouch'd by time'es rude hand?

     Whence come all this glorious hand?

3.  These are they who have contended

     For their Saviour honour long 

     Resting on till life was ended

     Following not the sinful throng 

     Those, who well the fight sustained 

     Triumph by the Lamb have gained.

4.  These are they whose heart were riven 

     Sore with woe and anguish tried

     Who in pray’r full oft have striven

     With the God they glorified

     Now, their painful conflict o’er 

     God has bid them weep no more.

5.  These are they who watch’d and waited 

     Offering up to Christ their will

     Soul and body consecrated

     Day and Night to serve Him still

     Now in God’s most holy place

     Blest they stand before His face.  Amen
