HYMN CXIX.

8.8.8.8

James Montgomery

Invitation to seek the better Country.

Come, let us go to heaven;--the way,

Like darkness, opens into day,

When from the turning-point of night,

Breaks the first beam of morning light.

Come let us go to heaven;--our guide

Is Christ who lived, is Christ who died,

And rose again; His staff and rod,

Through life and death, will lead to God.

Come, let us go to heaven;--forsake

Sin, earth, and hell, and gladly take

His easy yoke, His pleasant load,

And brave the dangers of the road.

121

Come, let us go to heaven;--and press

On through the howling wilderness;

Yet fear not, little flock, though foes

Without, within, your course oppose.

Come, let us go to heaven,--no power,

Not Satan roaring to devour,

Nor all his hosts, can harm, for ye,

Through Christ, shall more than conquerors be.

Come, let us go to heaven;--and meet

Once and for ever, round His feet;

Yea, in Christ's kingdom, as His own,

Sit down with Him upon His throne.

Can these things be?--they are, are sure

To all who to the end endure;

While unbelief cries, "can they be?"

Come, let us go to heaven and see.
