Text

The winter's past, the rain is o'er,
Glory, hallelujah!
We feel the chilling winds no more;
Glory, hallelujah!
The spring is come; how sweet the view,
O, glory, hallelujah!
All things appear divinely new,
O, glory, hallelujah!

On Zion's mount the watchmen cry,
The resurrection's drawing nigh:
Behold the nations from abroad
Are pressing to the mount of God.

O yes! and I will join that band,
Now here's my heart, and here's my hand;
With Satan's band no more I'll be,
But fight for Christ and liberty.

When sun and moon shall darkened be,
And flames consume the land and sea;
When worlds on worlds together blaze,
We'll shout and loud hosannas raise.
