9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; 10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. 11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God, 12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.

     13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? 14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. 16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. 17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.(KJV)

1. Ten thousand times ten thousand, 
In sparkling raiment bright, 
The armies of the ransomed saints 
Throng up the steeps of light. 
‘Tis finished, all is finished, 
Their fight with death and sin; 
Fling open wide the golden gates 
And let the victors in. 

2. What rush of alleluias 
Fills all the earth and sky! 
What ringing of a thousand harps 
Proclaims the triumph nigh! 
O day, for which creation 
And all its tribes were made; 
O joy, for all its former woes 
A thousandfold repaid! 

3. Oh, then what raptured greetings 
On Canaan’s happy shore; 
What knitting severed friendships up 
Where partings are no more! 
Then eyes with joy shall sparkle 
That brimmed with tears of late; 
Orphans no longer fatherless 
Nor widows desolate. 

4. Bring near Thy great salvation, 
Thou Lamb for sinners slain; 
Fill up the roll of Thine elect, 
Then take Thy power and reign. 
Appear, Desire of Nations; 
Thine exiles long for home. 
Show in the heavens Thy promised sign; 
Thou Prince and Savior, come!
