445. Children of the Heavenly King

1 Children of the heav'nly King,
As we journey let us sing;
Sing our Savior's worthy praise,
Glorious in His works and ways.

2 We are trav'ling home to God
In the way our fathers trod;
They are happy now,k and we
Soon their happiness shall see.

3 Fear not, brethren, joyful stand
On the borders of our land;
Jesus Christ, our Father's Son,
Bids us undismayed go on.

4 Lord, obediently we'll go,
Gladly leaving all below:
Only Thou our Leader be,
And we still will follow Thee.
