Author: Cennick Appears in 1,152 hymnals Scripture: Isaiah 35:10 First Line: Children of the heavenly king Lyrics: 1 Children of the heavenly king,
As we journey, sweetly sing;
Sing your savior's worthy praise,
Glorious in his works and ways.
2 Ye are travelling home to God,
In the way the fathers trod;
They are happy now, and ye
Soon their happiness shall see.
3 O ye banish'd seed, be glad!
Christ our advocate is made;
Us to save, our flesh assumes,
Brother to our souls becomes.
4 Shout, ye little flock, and blest,
You an Jesus' throne shall rest:
There your seat is now prepar'd,
There your kingdom and reward.
4 Fear not, brethren, joyful stand
On the borders of your land;
Jesus Christ, your father's son,
Bids us undismay'd go on.
5 Lord! submissive make us go,
Gladly leaving all below;
Only thou our leader be,
And we still will follow thee. Topics: The Graces of the Holy Spirit Joy and Rejoicing; Christ Brother; Joy and rejoicing; Rejoicing in hope; Removing and going on our way
