Representative Text

1 Come, let us anew
Our journey pursue,
With vigour arise,
And press to our permanent place in the skies
Of heavenly birth,
Tho' wand'irng on earth,
This is not our place,
But strangers and pilgrims ourselves we confess.

2 At Jesus' call,
We give up our All;
And still we forego,
For Jesus's sake, our enjoyments below:
No longing we find
For the country behind;
But onward we move,
And still we are seeking a country above.

3 A country of joy
Without any alloy,
We thither repair,
Our heart and our treasure already are there.
We march hand in hand
To Immanuel's land;
No matter what cheer
We meet with on earth, for eternity's near!

4 The rougher our way,
The shorter our stay;
The tempests that rise
Shall gloriously hurry our souls to the skies:
The fiercer the blast,
The sooner 'tis past;
The troubles that come,
Shall come to our rescue, and hasten us home.
