Heavenward bound

In life's bright morning the tempest we brave

Representative Text

1 In life's bright morning the tempest we brave,
We're heav'nward bound, heav'nward bound;
Out on the dark and the storm-broken wave,
We're heav'nward bound, heav'nward bound.
Earth's bright attractions grow dim in the light,
That distant city reveals to our sight,
Toward which we're urging our unceasing flight,
We're heav'nward bound, heav'nward bound.

2 Tossed though we be on a dark restless tide,
We're heav'nward bound, heav'nward bound;
The ship of Zion will dangers outride,
We're heav'nward bound, heav'nward bound;
Jesus our Captain dispelleth our fear;
Hear him proclaiming, "A hundred fold here,"
With life eternal, when he shall appear,
We're heav'nward bound, heav'nward bound.

3 Now to the youthful the voyage we commend,
Come, with us go, with us go;
Welcome! a welcome to all we extend,
Say, will you go, will you go?
Swiftly, O swiftly we'll fly to the ark!
Our ship is passing--make haste to embark!
Night hastens quickly, all dreary and dark,
Haste! let us go, let us go!
