    Verse 1
    Children of the heavenly King,
    As ye journey, sweetly sing;
    Sing your Saviour's worthy praise,
    Glorious in His works and ways

    Verse 2
    We are travelling home to God,
    In the way the fathers trod;
    They are happy now, and we
    Soon their happiness shall see.

    Verse 3
    Shout, ye little flock, and blest;
    You on Jesu's throne shall rest:
    There your seat is now prepared,
    There your kingdom and reward.

    Verse 4
    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.

    Verse 5
    Fear not, brethren; joyful stand
    On the borders of your land;
    Jesus Christ, your Father's Son,
    Bids you undismayed go on.

    Verse 6
    Lord, obediently we go,
    Gladly leaving all below;
    Only Thou our leader be;
    And we still will follow Thee.
