Representative Text

1 See, brethren, see how the day rolls on,
Quickly will the Saviour come;
Hark! hear the sound, "he will appear,"
Sweetly falls upon the ear.

Chorus:
Then haste, let us work till the daylight is o'er,
Our hearts fill'd with love as we row to the shore;
Our earthly labor being done,
How sweet the Christian's welcome home!
Home, home, home, the Christian's welcome home;
Sweet, O sweet the Christian's welcome home,
Welcome home, welcome home,
Welcome home.

2 Lift up your heads, and rejoice in God;
Shout his praises all abroad;
Soon shall we hear the voice, "'Tis one;
Child, your Father calls; come home." [Chorus]

3 Come, sinners, come, let us all awake!
And the Spirit's truth partake;
Soon will appear, and O how bright!
Prayer to praise and faith to sight. [Chorus]

4 Hail, brethren, hail! it's the new-born year;
Michael's trump we soon shall hear,
Then will the saints and angels sing,
"Glory be to heaven's King." [Chorus]
