Children Of The Heavenly King
Author: John Cennick
1. Children of the heavenly King,
As ye journey sweetly sing:
Sing your Saviour's worthy praise,
Glorious in His works and ways.
2. We are travelling home to God,
In the way the fathers trod:
They are happy now, and we
Soon their happiness shall see.
3. 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.
4. Fear not, brethren; joyful stand
On the borders of your land;
Jesus Christ, your Father's Son,
Bids you undismayed go on.
