Download the listening track for Behold A Host Arrayed In White by Traditional Hymn, from the album Open Hymnal.


Verse 1 Behold a host, arrayed in white Like thousand snow-clad mountains bright With palms they stand. Who is this band Before the throne of light? Lo, these are they of glorious fame Who from the great affliction came And in the flood of Jesus' blood Are cleansed from guilt and blame Now gathered in the holy place Their voices they in worship raise Their anthems swell where God doth dwell Mid angels song of praise. Verse 2 Despised and scorned, they sojourned here But now, how glorious they appear Those martyrs stand a priestly band God's throne forever near So oft, in troubled days gone by In anguish they would weep and sigh At home above the God of Love For aye their tears shall dry They now enjoy their Sabbath rest The paschal banquet of the blest The Lamb, their Lord, at festal board Himself is Host and Guest. Verse 3 Then hail, ye mighty legions, yea All hail! Now safe and blest for aye And praise the Lord, who with His Word Sustained you on the way Ye did the joys of earth disdain Ye toiled and sowed in tears and pain Farewell, now bring your sheaves and sing Salvation's glad refrain Swing high your palms, lift up your song Yea, make it myriad voices strong Eternally shall praise to Thee God, and the Lamb belong....
