A Glorious Church

Hymn lyrics and music by Ralph E. Hudson

Verse 1

Do you hear them coming, brother,
Thronging up the steeps of light,
Clad in glorious shining garments,
Blood washed, garments pure and white?

Chorus

’Tis a glorious church without spot or wrinkle,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb;
’Tis a glorious church without spot or wrinkle,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb.

Verse 2

Do you hear the stirring anthems,
Filling all the earth and sky,
’Tis a grand, victorious army,
Lift its banner up on high!

Chorus

Verse 3

Never fear the clouds of sorrow,
Never fear the storms of sin.
We shall triumph on the morrow,
Even now our joys begin.

Chorus

Verse 4

Wave the banner, shout His praises,
For our victory is nigh!
We shall join our conqu’ring Savior,
We shall reign with Him on high!

Chorus

Do you have the sheet music or know where I could find it for "A Glorious Cross"? You can send it to me at fbcsbmusic@yahoo.com. Thanks.

I am blessed simply by reading the words to these old hymns that sing of the blood of Jesus. Not many songs today sing of the Blood. Thank you for your list and words.
