Verse 1
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.

Shout, ye little flock, and blest,
You on Jesu's throne shall rest;
There your seat is now prepared,
There your kingdom and reward.

We are travelling 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 our endless home shall be,
There our Lord we soon shall see.

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.

We are travelling home to God,
In the way the fathers trod;

Soon their happiness shall see.

Lord, obediently we go,
Gladly leaving all below;
Only Thou our leader be;
And we still will follow Thee.

In the way the fathers trod;

Soon their happiness shall see.
