Hymn/Song Information

Long scattered thy children O Zion have been But




Long scattered thy children,
O Zion, have been,
But now they are gathering home:
The Spirit is calling, they gladly obey,
With songs of rejoicing they come.

Thy children are gathering home,
With joy they are gathering home;
From all the divisions
in which they were scattered,
Thy children are gathering home.



False shepherds divided
and scattered the flock,
And hirelings ruled oer them for gain,
But back to their fold
on Mount Zions fair height
They come to forever remain.

Thy children are gathering home,
With joy they are gathering home;
From all the divisions
in which they were scattered,
Thy children are gathering home.



To unity glorious, rich and complete,
One faith and one body, one Lord,
One way and one Spirit,
one hope and one God,
They come at the call of His word.

Thy children are gathering home,
With joy they are gathering home;
From all the divisions
in which they were scattered,
Thy children are gathering home.



Sectarian walls shall no longer divide,
False teachers shall
lead them no more;
True pastors shall feed them
on heavenly food,
Their sorrows and sighings are oer.

Thy children are gathering home,
With joy they are gathering home;
From all the divisions
in which they were scattered,
Thy children are gathering home.
