Representative Text

1 Children of the kingdom, while we journey here,
Only for a time abiding;
Looking unto Jesus, banish ev'ry fear,
For his eyes our path is guiding.

From the land of song, the bright land of song,
Listen to the music gently falling;
Children of the kingdom, tarry not, but come
Where the pure in heart are calling.

2 Children of the kingdom, pressing on our way,
Never let us falter, never;
Bear the cross for Jesus, bear it ev'ry day,
In his mercy trusting ever. [Chorus]

3 Children of the kingdom, while we watch and wait,
Never be discouraged, never;
Soon our feet will enter thro' the palace gate,
And go out no more forever. [Chorus]

4 Children of the kingdom, joyful let us be,
Yonder is the shining river;
There in all his beauty we the King shall see,
And behold his face forever. [Chorus]
