CHILDREN OF THE HEAVENLY KING (HYMN)

16 Aug

Children of the heavenly King,

As ye journey sweetly sing;

Sing your Saviour’s worthy praise,

Glorious in his works and ways.

 

We are travelling home to God

In the way the fathers trod;

They are happy now, and we

Soon their happiness shall see.

 

Fear not, brethren; joyful stand

On the borders of your land;

Jesus Christ your Father’s Son,

Bids you undismayed go on.

 

Lord, obediently we go,

Gladly leaving all below;

Only thou our Leader be,

And we still will follow thee.

– J. Cennick, 1718-55
