Hymn: “Children of the Heavenly King”
Children of the heavenly King,
As we journey let us sing;
Sing our Savior’s worthy praise,
Glorious in his works and ways.
We are traveling home to God,
In the way our fathers trod;
They are happy now, and we
Soon their happiness shall see.
Fear not, brethren; joyful stand
On the borders of our land;
Jesus Christ, our Father’s Son,
Bids us undismayed go on.
Lord, obediently we’ll go,
Gladly leaving all below;
Only thou our leader be,
And we still will follow thee.
Lift your eyes, ye sons of light,
Zion’s city is in sight;
There our endless home shall be,
There our Lord we soon shall see. Amen.
Closing Prayer: The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
