517. Children of the heavenly King

Four 7's

Pleyel's Hymn:

Arr. from Ignaz Joseph Pleyel, 1790

John Cennick, 1743

Children of the heavenly King,

As ye journey, sweetly sing!

Sing your Savior's worthy praise,

Glorious in his works and ways!

We are traveling home to God,

In the way the fathers trod:

They are happy now, and we

Soon their happiness shall see.

Lift your eyes, ye sons of light!

Sion's city is in sight:

There our endless home shall be,

There our Lord we soon shall see.

472

Fear not, brethren; joyful stand

On the borders of your land;

Jesus Christ, your Father's Son,

Bids you undismayed go on.

Lord, obediently we go,

Gladly leaving all below;

Only thou our leader be,

And we will still follow thee.

Amen.
