Representative Text

1 We are children of the light
Saved from sin,
Into hope of future bright,
Enter in.
For our Lord will bless the pure,
And his promises are sure,
We shall praise him evermore,

Let us gladly then rejoice,
For a home prepared above,
Waits us in the land of love,
Let us sing as on we move,

2 In his name our praise shall flow,
When we meet,
To his service gladly go,
It is sweet.
In our midst he e’er will be,
Where are gathered two or three,
And his glory we shall see,
Evermore. [Refrain]

3 For his blessings we will ask,
When we pray;
Jesus’ service is no task,
On the way.
He will lead us safely thro’
For he is a friend so true,
We’ll our faith in him renew,
Evermore. [Refrain]

4 Then be faithful unto death
And rejoice with latest breath,
Him adore.
For our Lord for us hath died,
Jesus Christ the crucified,
In his mansions we’ll abide
Evermore. [Refrain]
