ALWAYS REJOICING




Children of the heavenly King,
As ye journey, sweetly sing;
Sing your Saviourís worthy praise,
Glorious in His works and ways


Abra'm's favoured seed be glad;
One with Christ ye shall be made;
He our human flesh assumed,
And our ruined souls redeemed.


We are travelling 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 assumesó
Brother to our souls becomes.


Shout, ye little flock, and blest,
You on Jesusí throne shall rest:
There your seat is now preparedó
There your kingdom and reward.


Lift your eyes, ye sons of light,
Zionís city is in sight:
There our endless home shall be,
There our Lord we soon shall see.


Foes are round us. But we stand
On the borders of our land:
Jesus, God's exalted Son,
Bids us undismayed go on.


Lord, obedient we would go,
Gladly leaving all below;
Only Thou our Leader be;
And we will still follow Thee.


Seal our love, our labours end;
Let us to Thy bliss ascend;
Let us to Thy kingdom come;
Lord! we long to be at home.

Soon their happiness shall see.

We with Jesus, soon shall rest;

There our kingdom and reward.


Onward then weíll gladly press
Through this earthly wilderness;
Only, Lord, our Leader be
And we still will follow thee.
