601. Jesus Is Calling His People

1 Jesus is calling His people again,
Back to the glorified heavenly plain,
Home to the city of purity bright,
Out from sin Babel’s confusion and night.

Refrain:
Glory to God! We’ll sing it again!
Glory to God! We’ll shout the refrain!
Praise to Jehovah our tongues shall employ,
Home to Mount Zion we’re coming with joy.

2 Jesus is calling the holy to war,
See them now coming from near and from far;
Hear on the mountain their song of delight,
See their white raiment and armor of light. [Refrain]

3 Jesus is calling the chosen and few,
Now in Mount Zion they’re building anew,
Building the walls of the city of God,
While His high praises they’re sounding aloud. [Refrain]

4 Jesus is calling the faithful and true,
Calling, my brother and sister, for you;
For in Jerusalem city today
Thousands are gathering, do not delay. [Refrain]
