Lyrics

Verse 1
Riches in glory, O what a thought!
Jesus’ own blood this wealth for us bought;
He became poor so we might be made
Heirs to the joy that never will fade.

Chorus
Riches in glory! riches in glory!
Riches in glory to meet ev’ry need;
Riches in glory! riches in glory!
Royal supply our wants to exceed.

Verse 2
Riches in glory, O what a store!
Treasures the soul can never deplore;
E’en while we bear the cross and its shame,
Riches in glory gladly we claim.

Verse 3
Riches in glory for you and me,
What a delight the visions we see!
Pilgrims today as strangers we’re known,
While unto God we’re heirs to a throne.

Verse 4
Riches in glory faith hath bro’t nigh,
E’en now we boast the portion on high,
Blessed this taste of all that shall be,
When in His beauty Jesus we see.
