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.
O, ye banished seed, be glad!
Christ our Advocate is made
Us to save, our flesh assume
Brother to our souls becomes.
Shout, ye little flock, and blest
You on Jesus' throne shall rest
There your seat is now prepare
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 undismayed go on.
Lord, obedient we would go
Gladly leaving all below
Only Thou our Leader be
And we will still follow Thee.
The Gospel song, "Children Of The Heavenly King", was composed by John Cennick in 1742.
