Come, let us go to heaven;--the way,
Like darkness, opens into day,
When from the turning-point of night,
Breaks the first beam of morning light.
Come let us go to heaven;--our guide
Is Christ who lived, is Christ who died,
And rose again; His staff and rod,
Through life and death, will lead to God.
Come, let us go to heaven;--forsake
Sin, earth, and hell, and gladly take
His easy yoke, His pleasant load,
And brave the dangers of the road.
Come, let us go to heaven;--and press
On through the howling wilderness;
Yet fear not, little flock, though foes
Without, within, your course oppose.
Come, let us go to heaven,--no power,
Not Satan roaring to devour,
Nor all his hosts, can harm, for ye,
Through Christ, shall more than conquerors be.
Come, let us go to heaven;--and meet
Once and for ever, round His feet;
Yea, in Christ's kingdom, as His own,
Sit down with Him upon His throne.
Can these things be?--they are, are sure
To all who to the end endure;
While unbelief cries, "can they be?"
Come, let us go to heaven and see.
