Text

Children of the heav'nly King,
As ye journey, sweetly sing;
Sing your Savior’s worthy praise,
Glorious in His works and ways.

We are trav’ling home to God,
In the way the fathers trod;
They are happy now, and we
Soon their happiness shall see.

Lift your eyes, ye sons of light,
Zion’s city is in sight:
There your seat is now prepared
There your kingdom and reward.

We are trav’ling 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;
There our endless home shall be,
There our Lord we soon shall see.

We are trav’ling home to God,
In the way the fathers trod;
They are happy now, and we
Soon their happiness shall see.
