Hymn/Song Information

Come away to the skies my beloved arise




Come away to the skies,
my belovèd, arise
And rejoice in the day thou wast born;
On this festival day,
come exulting away,
And with singing to Zion return.


We have laid up our love
and our treasure above,
Though our bodies continue below.
The redeemed of the Lord
will remember His Word,
And with singing to paradise go.


Now with singing and praise
let us spend all the days
By our heavenly Father bestowed,
While His grace we receive
from His bounty, and live
To the honor and glory of God!


For the glory we were
first created to share,
Both the nature and kingdom divine,
Now created again
that our lives may remain
Throughout time and eternity Thine.


We with thanks do approve
the design Of that love
that hath joined us to Jesus’ Name;
Now united in heart,
let us never more part,
Till we meet at the feast of the Lamb.


There, Oh! there at His feet,
we shall all likewise meet,
And be parted in body no more;
We shall sing to our lyres,
with the heavenly choirs,
And our Savior in glory adore.


Hallelujah! we sing
to our Father and King,
And His rapturous praises repeat:
To the Lamb that was slain,
Hallelujah again!
Sing all Heaven and fall at His feet!


In assurance of hope,
We to Jesus look up,
Till his banner unfurled in the air
From our graves we shall see,
And cry out, "It is he!"
And fly up to acknowledge him there.
