1 Here from all nations, all tongues, and all peoples,
countless the crowd but their voices are one;
vast is the sight and majestic their singing
'God has the victory: he reigns from the throne!'
2 These have come out of the hardest oppression,
now they may stand in the presence of God,
serving their Lord day and night in his temple,
ransomed and cleansed by the Lamb's precious blood.
3 Gone is their thirst and no more shall they hunger,
God is their shelter, his power at their side:
sun shall not pain them, no burning will torture;
Jesus the Lamb is their Shepherd and Guide.
4 He will go with them to clear living water
flowing from springs which his mercy supplies;
gone is their grief and their trials are over,
God wipes away every tear from their eyes.
5 Blessing and glory and wisdom and power
be to the Saviour again and again;
might and thanksgiving and honour for ever
be to our God: Hallelujah! Amen.
