Suggested Uses(s)

SAB Choir and Organ. Yes, we all love Alice Parker's arrangement of this wonderful Sacred Harp tune. But sometimes our choirs are modest: Small but mighty, we like to say. If your choir falls into this category, you might want to give this setting a try. A lot of flavor in a small package!

Hark, I hear the harps eternal
Ringing on the farther shore,
As I near those swollen waters
With their deep and solemn roar.

Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Hallelujah, praise the Lamb!
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Glory to the great I AM!

And my soul, tho’ stain’d with sorrow,
Fading as the light of day,
Passes swiftly o’er those waters,
To the city far away.

Souls have crossed before me saintly,
To that land of perfect rest;
And I hear them singing faintly
In the mansions of the blest.
