745 ( John Cennick

Children of the heav'nly King,

As ye journey, sweetly sing;

Sing your Saviour's worthy praise,

Glorious in his works and ways.

Ye are trav'ling home to God,

In the way the fathers trod;

They are happy now, and ye

Soon their happiness shall see.

O, ye banished seed, be glad!

Christ our advocate is made;

Us to save, our flesh assumes,

Brother to our souls he comes.

Shout, ye little flock, and blessed,

You on Jesus' throne shall rest;

There your seat is now prepared —

There your kingdom and reward.

Fear not, brethren, joyful stand

On the borders of your land;

Christ, your Father's elder Son,

Bids you undismayed go on.

Lord! submissive make us go,

Gladly leaving all below;

Only Thou our leader be,

And we still will follow Thee.
