Up Through Endless Ranks of Angels

A lot of doxological verses sound sort of the same, but not this one.

Alleluia, alleluia!
Oh, to breathe the Spirit's grace!
Alleluia, alleluia!
Oh, to see the Father's face!
Alleluia, Alleluia!
Oh, to feel the Son's embrace!

Hasten the day.

Amen, and amen.

I am privileged to know the (late) composer of that text, and to have weekly fellowship with the composer of the tune. It's one of the most joyous hymns in a minor key. And yes, hasten the day.
