Text

Come, let us join our friends above,
Who have obtained the prize,
And on the eagle wings of love
To joys celestial rise.

Let saints on earth unite to sing
With those to glory gone,
For all the servants of our King
In earth and heav’n are one.

One army of the living God,
To His command we bow;
Part of His host have crossed the flood,
And part are crossing now.

Our spirits too shall quickly join,
Like theirs with glory crowned,
And shout to see our Captain’s sign,
To hear His trumpet sound.
