O happy soul how fast you goPublished in 8 hymnals
1 Oh! happy soul how fast you go,
And leave me here behind;
Don't stop for me, for now I see,
The Lord is just and kind.
2 Go on, go on, my soul says go,
And I'll come after you;
Though I'm behind, yet I can find,
I'll sing hosanna too.
3 God give you strength that you may run,
And keep your footsteps right;
Though fast you go, and I so slow,
You are not out of sight.
4 When you get to those worlds above,
And all their glories see;
When you get home your work is done,
Then look you out for me.
5 For I will come fast as I can,
Along the way I'll steer;
Lord give me strength, I shall at length
Be one amongst you there.
6 There altogether we shall be,
Together we shall sing;
Together shall we praise our God
And everlasting king.
