1. Oh, how happy are we,
Who in Jesus agree,
And expect His return from above;
We sit ’neath His vine,
And delightfully join

How happy, how happy are we.

2. When united to Him,
We partake of the stream
Ever flowing in peace from the throne;
We in Jesus believe,
And the Spirit receive,
That proceeds from the Father and Son. [Refrain]

3. We remember the word
Of our crucified Lord,
When He went to prepare us a place,
I will come in that day
And will take you away,
And admit to the sight of My face. [Refrain]
