CCXXIII

J. Cennick

Children of the Heavenly King,

As ye journey, sweetly sing;

Sing your Saviour's worthy praise,

Glorious in His works and ways!

We are travelling home to GOD,

In the way the Fathers trod;

They are happy now; and we

Soon their happiness shall see.

Shout, ye little flock, and blest!

You on JESUS' Throne shall rest;

There your seat is now prepared,

There your kingdom and reward.

Lift your eyes, ye sons of Light!

Zion's city is in sight:

There our endless home shall be,

There our LORD we soon shall see.

Fear not, brethren; joyful stand

On the borders of your land;

JESUS CHRIST, your Father's Son,

Bids you undismay'd go on.

LORD! obediently we go,

Gladly leaving all below:

Only Thou our Leader be,

And we still will follow Thee.
