Who Are These like Stars Appearing

  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?
    Alleluia! Hark, they sing,
    praising loud their heav’nly King.
  2. Who are these of dazzling brightness,
    these in God’s own truth arrayed,
    clad in robes of purest whiteness,
    robes whose luster ne’er shall fade,
    ne’er be touched by time’s rude hand?
    Whence come all this glorious band?
  3. These are they who have contended
    for their Savior’s honor long,
    wrestling on ’til life was ended,
    foll’wing not the sinful throng;
    these, who well the fight sustained,
    triumph thro’ the Lamb have gained.
  4. These are they whose hearts 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, like priests, have watched and waited,
    off’ring 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.
