Hymn/Song Information

Called from above and heavenly men by




Called from above,
and heavenly men by birth,
(Who once were
but the citizens of earth)
As pilgrims here,
we seek a heavenly home,
Our portion in
the ages yet to come.


Where all the saints
of every clime shall meet,
And each with all
shall all the ransomed greet,
But oh, the height of bliss,
our Lord, shall be
To owe it all,
and share it all, with Thee.


Thou wast the image
in man's lowly guise
Of the invisible to mortal eyes;
Son of His bosom,
come from heaven above,
We see in Thee incarnate,
"God is love".


Thy lips the Father's name
to us reveal;
What burning power
in all Thy words we feel,
As with enraptured hearts
we hear Thee tell
The heavenly glories
which Thou know'st so well!


No curse of law,
in Thee was sovereign grace,
And now what glory
in Thine unveiled face!
Thou didst attract the wretched
and the weak,
Thy joy the wanderers
and the lost to seek.


That precious stream
of water and of blood
Which from Thy pierced side
so freely flowed,
Has put away our sins
of scarlet dye,
Washed us from every stain,
and brought us nigh.


We are but strangers here,
we do not crave
A home on earth,
which gave Thee but a grave:
Thy cross has severed ties
which bound us here,
Thyself our treasure
in a brighter sphere.
