Verse 1
Come, let us join our friends above
That have obtained the prize,
And on the eagle wings of love
To joys celestial rise.

Verse 2
Let all the saints terrestrial sing,
With those to glory gone;
For all the servants of our King,
In earth and heaven, are one.

Verse 3
One family we dwell in Him,
One Church, above, beneath,
Though now divided by the stream,
The narrow stream of death.

Verse 4
One army of the living God,
To His command we bow;
Part of His host have crossed the flood,
And part are crossing now.

Verse 5
Our spirits too quickly join,
Like theirs with glory crowned,
And shout to see our Captain's sign,
To hear His trumpet sound.

Verse 6
O Jesus, be our guard and guide,
And when the word is given,
Come, Lord of hosts, the waves divide,
And land us safe in heaven.
