Words by Jesse Randal Baxter Jr.Music by Christopher C. StaffordKey signature: E flat major (3 flats)Public Domain1. It thrills my soul to hear the songs of praise, We mortals sing below, And tho’ it takes the parting of the ways, Yet I must onward go; I hope to hear thruout unnumbered days, The song earth cannot know, They sing in heaven a new song Of Moses and the Lamb.Refrain: I want to hear the angels singing, To bid me welcome to mansions bright and fair; I want to hear the glad harps ringing With voices blending rich and rare; I want to see the Master bringing, A precious life crown that I may own and wear; I want to hear that mighty chorus sweetly sing, I want to hear it swell and ring!2. The greatest joy that I have ever known, Is praising Him in song, I know some day when I have older grown, My voice will not be strong; But if good seed for Jesus I have sown, With angels I’ll belong, They sing in heaven a new song Of Moses and the Lamb.3. The sweetest song that earth can ever boast, Was sung when Christ was born, Yet He who walked the Galilean coast, Sometimes was sad forlorn; He left the earth to send the Holy Ghost, To guide us till that morn, They sing in heaven a new song Of Moses and the Lamb.
