We're hastening at our King's command

Representative Text

1 We're hast'ning at our king's command,
A journey to pursue,
We're going to the promised land,
Our heritage to view.

Pressing onward, pressing onward,
To a brighter, better world we go
Pressing onward, pressing onward,
Ever nearing heav'n our home.

2 Earth has no portion, rest, or joy,
To fill our vast desire,
To nobler, purer bliss on high,
Our longing souls aspire. [Chorus]

3 We seek a city out of sight,
Jerusalem above,
Where throned in heavenly splendors bright,
Abides the God we love. [Chorus]
