549. Golden harps are sounding

1 Golden harps are sounding,
Angel voices ring,
Pearly gates are opened.
Opened for the King.
Christ, King of glory,
Jesus, King of love,
Is gone up in triumph
To His throne above.

All His suffering ended,
Joyfully we sing;
Jesus hath ascended;
Glory to our King!

2 He Who came to save us,
He Who bled and died,
Now is crowned with glory
At His Father’s side.
Never more to suffer,
Never more to die,
Jesus, King of glory,
Has gone up on high. [Refrain]

3 Praying for His children,
In that blessèd place,
Calling them to glory,
Sending them His grace;
His bright home preparing,
Faithful ones, for you,
Jesus ever liveth,
Ever loveth, too. [Refrain]
