30. "Pray, brethren, pray"

1 Pray, brethren, pray!
The prayer of faith availeth;
Pray, brethren, pray!
On God your spirits stay.

A few more days in sorrow,
And the Lord will call us home,
To walk the golden streets
Of the New Jerusalem.

2 Sing, brethren, sing!
Rejoice with joy and gladness;
Sing, brethren, sing!
Your songs of triumph bring. [Chorus]

3 Rise, brethren, rise!
Your souls by faith ascending;
Rise, brethren, rise!
Your home is in the skies. [Chorus]

4 Home, brethren, home!
That home is pure and holy;
Home, brethren, home!
No evil there can come. [Chorus]

5 Come, brethren, come!
We'll travel on together;
Come, brethren, come!
We're on our journey home. [Chorus]

6 Come, sinner, too!
Christ came to save poor sinners;
Come, sinner, too!
The message is to you.

Oh wait not for to-morrow!
For to-morrow may not come;
Repent, and come with us
To the New Jerusalem.
