Hymn/Song Information

Sitting by the gateway of a palace fair




Sitting by the gateway
of a palace fair,
Once a child of God was left to die;
By the world neglected,
wealth would nothing share:
See the change awaiting
there on high.

Carried by the angels
to the land of rest,
Music sweetly sounding
through the skies;
Welcomed by the Saviour
to the heavenly feast,
Gathered with the loved in Paradise.



What shall be the ending
of this life of care?
Oft the question cometh to us all;
Here upon the pathway
hard the burdens bear,
And the burning tears of sorrow fall.

Carried by the angels
to the land of rest,
Music sweetly sounding
through the skies;
Welcomed by the Saviour
to the heavenly feast,
Gathered with the loved in Paradise.



Follower of Jesus,
scanty though thy store,
Treasures, precious treasures,
wait on high;
Count the trials joyful,
soon they’ll all be o’er,
Oh, the change
that’s coming by and by!

Carried by the angels
to the land of rest,
Music sweetly sounding
through the skies;
Welcomed by the Saviour
to the heavenly feast,
Gathered with the loved in Paradise.



Upward then, and onward!—
Onward for the Lord!
Time and talent all in His employ;
Small may seem the service—
sure the great reward,
Here the cross—but there
the crown of joy!

Carried by the angels
to the land of rest,
Music sweetly sounding
through the skies;
Welcomed by the Saviour
to the heavenly feast,
Gathered with the loved in Paradise.
