Representative Text

1 Come! our Father's voice is calling,
One by one His children dear;
He will raise the weak, the falling,
He the fainting heart will cheer.

2 Come! our Shepherd waits to lead us,
He who once for sinners died,
Where the Bread of Heaven will feed us,
Where the living streams abide.

3 Come! the Spirit now will seal us,
Heirs of God for evermore;
Strong to help, and kind to heal us,
When our souls are weak and sore.

4 Come! our King Himself will arm us,
For the fight we must endure;
'Neath His shield, when foes alarm us,
He will keep our life secure.

5 Come! the Cross, our banner glorious,
Onward guides the host of God;
We may march, in hope victorious,
By the path our Saviour trod.

Amen.
