Representative Text

Chorus:
Come and reign; come and reign,
Jesus, quickly come;
For now it fills my heart with joy
To know I'm almost home.

1 Here I see the falling tear,
As pilgrim now I roam,
An exile from my Father's house;
But soon he'll call me home. [Chorus]

2 [Chorus]
Here I grieve the friends I love,
And they in turn grieve me;
But, O my Saviour! grant me grace,
That I may not grieve thee. [Chorus]

3 [Chorus]
Here disease invades our frame,
We sicken, droop, and die;
But there eternal youth shall bloom,
And bright shall beam each eye. [Chorus]

4 [Chorus]
Here we meet and part again,
As far and near we roam;
But there we'll meet to part no more,
And sweetly rest at home. [Chorus]
