Come All Ye Saints to Pisgah’s Mountain
A Hymn


COME, all ye saints, to Pisgah’s mountain,
Come see the view beyond the tide:
Millennial Canaan is before us,
Soon we’ll sing on the other side.
O! there see the "white throne of glory,"
And crowns which the saints then shall gain;
And all who shall love Christ’s appearing
Shall be blessed by his glorious reign.


O! the prospect! it is so transporting,
Reapers, hasten the gath’ring, we pray;
We rejoice in the glory that’s promised,
And the dawn of millennial day.


Thence springs of life will e’er be flowing,
Robing the earth in living green,
Visions of beauty rise before us
When the King and the saints shall reign.
Soon our conflicts and toils will be ended;
We’ll be tried and tempted no more,
And mankind of all ages and nations
Shall be blessed in that triumphant hour.


Faith now beholds salvation’s river,
Gliding from underneath the throne,
Bearing its life to whomsoever
Will return to his Father’s home.
They will walk ’mid the trees by the rivers,
With the friends they have loved by their side;
They will sing the glad songs of salvation,
And be ready to follow their guide.


These are based from the original words of J W Dadmun (1819‑1890) who was a pastor in a Methodist Episcopal Church.

Here are some Bible verses which are thought to have inspired the writer:

Deut.3:27‑28 Get thee up into the top of Pisgah, and lift up thine eyes westward, and northward, and southward, and eastward, and behold it with thine eyes… But charge Joshua, and encourage him, and strengthen him: for he shall go over before this people, and he shall cause them to inherit the land which thou shalt see.

Exod.3:17 I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt unto the land of the Canaanites…

Rev.20:11 I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it.

2 Tim.4:8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

Rev.20:4 I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image...and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

Gal.6:7‑9 Be not deceived…for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Rev.14:14‑16 I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. And another angel came out of the temple, crying...thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.

Matt.13:30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

Deut.3:16‑17 (YLT) To the Reubenite and...Gadite I have given from Gilead even unto…the plain, and the Jordan, and the border, from Chinnereth even unto the sea of the plain, the salt sea, under the springs of Pisgah, at the [sun]‑rising.

Rev.22:2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

Ezek.47:7 Now when I had returned, behold, at the bank of the river were very many trees on the one side and on the other.

Isa.35:10 The ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness.
