Children of the heavenly King
1. Children of the heavenly King,
As ye journey sweetly sing;
Sing your Saviourís worthy praise,
Glorious in His works and ways.
2. We are traveling home to God,
In the way the fathers trod;
They are happy now, and we
Soon their happiness shall see.
3. Lift your eyes, you sons of light;
Zionís city is in sight;
There our endless home shall be,
There our Lord we soon shall see.
4. Fear not, brethren; joyful stand
On the borders of your land;
Jesus Christ, your Fatherís Son,
Bids you undismayed go on.
5. Lord, obediently we go,
Gladly leaving all below;
Only Thou our Leader be,
And we still will follow Thee.
