Children of the Heavenly King
Children of the heavenly King,
As ye journey, sweetly sing;
Sing your Saviorís 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.
O, ye banished seed, be glad!
Christ our Advocate is made;
Us to save, our flesh assumesó
Brother to our souls becomes.
Shout, ye little flock, and blest,
You on Jesusí throne shall rest:
There your seat is now preparedó
There your kingdom and reward.
Lift your eyes, ye sons of light,
Zionís 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 Fatherís Son,
Bids you undismayed go on.
Lord, obedient we would go,
Gladly leaving all below;
Only Thou our Leader be;
And we will still follow Thee.
